Fourth of July Cupcakes
- Line your cupcake tins with cupcake liners.
- In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients with your mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes or until well blended.
- Place batter evenly into the cupcake liners. I found just a little bit more than 2 tablespoons of batter works well.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
- Beat the butter for a few minutes using your mixer on medium speed.
- Add 3 cups of powdered sugar and mix on low speed until blended.
- Add the vanilla extract, salt, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix on medium speed for 3 minutes.
- If you need stiffer frosting, add the remaining sugar.
- If you need a thinner frosting, add the remaining milk.
- Split your frosting in thirds. Add red food coloring gel to one and blue to another one.
- Ice your cupcakes.
