Mother's Day Cupcakes

     Here is a cute idea for your Mother's Day celebration.Vanilla cupcakes,with vanilla buttercream and a decorated cookie on top! I made the cookies using my vanilla cookie recipe(February puppy pops),but you can use your favorite recipe and decorate as you like!I baked the cookies on craft sticks,but you may place the cookies directly onto your cupcake.So cute!

Vanilla Cupcake Ingredients:
2 sticks unsalted butter,softened
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
2-3/4 c. flour
   In the bowl of your mixer,blend together the butter and sugar until fluffy(2-3 minutes).Add the eggs,then the vanilla.Add the salt and baking powder.Add the flour and milk,alternating between the two,beginning and ending with the flour.
   Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.Fill each liner with the batter  about 3/4 of the way full.Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.Let cool,then frost with vanilla buttercream.

 Vanilla Buttercream :
 2 sticks unsalted butter,softened
 1/2 c. milk
 1 tsp. vanilla
 6 c. powdered sugar
   Blend together the butter,milk and vanilla in the bowl of your mixer.Slowly add the powdered sugar.It may need a bit more than 6 cups,just taste and see if you like it.If it is not stiff enough to frost,add 1/2 c. more.
