Easter Cupcakes

Vanilla Easter Cupcakes with Vanilla buttercream frosting. And sprinkles!

After this weekend, I’m on a cup cake hiatus.  Two weekends in a row, with the ensuing week of left over frosting in the fridge might be just too much for my near middle-age waistline.  It’s yummy and delicious and fun of course…but a caloric disaster!  But my God, cupcakes are one of my favorite things on this earth.  (I know, I have a lot of “favorites”….so sue me!)

The first batch I made did NOT turn out well.  Cupcake DISASTER!  And it was from Martha Stewart’s sight no less.  BAD MARTHA…BAD!  (http://www.marthastewart.com/255457/billys-vanilla-vanilla-cupcakes) And who is this Billy person anyway??

This more successful recipe was taken from Amy Sedaris of all people: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Amy-Sedariss-Vanilla-Cupcakes-236125   A woman/actress/comedian/author/baker after my own heart!   Don’t let her fool you though….her vanilla buttercream frosting is the same one one the back of the powdered sugar box!  Don’t mess with a classic I guess.
