You know I can almost never resist trying a new recipe that claims to be the best of something. Often times they aren’t the best, just different. Then there are those that really are amongst the best and when they are, I tend to flip those into what I categorize as a classic. By classic, I mean those go-to, no-fail, always-ready-to-impress desserts.
This classic vanilla cupcake and vanilla buttercream frosting is one of them.
The recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens. As I said, it meets all the criteria for being deemed classic. Most times I make it straight up without a lot of fuss, but on occasions when I need something whimsical for an event, this is what I end up with: the classic vanilla cupcake dressed up with some decorative cupcake liners and Washi tape flags.
Think of the recipe as your blank canvas. Dress it up, dress it down, color the frosting, theme it out, pimp it out, sprinkle it with sugar, dust it with glitter, cover it in baubles—you get the idea—get as crazy you want to! Just don’t go altering the recipe too much because it’s perfectly good the way it is. To grab the recipe, hit the jump here over to Better Homes and Gardens’ blog Delish Dish.
