Red, white & blue Cupcakes

I’m swedish ans I dont really care much about the 4th of July BUT I live here so I gota do a lil something. So me and P made these mini vanilla muffins with a red,white and blue vanilla frosting. SOOOOOO tasty and this frosting is my go to! You can NOT go wrong. Its delicious. Gona be honest, it was messy AF to put the three different colors in the piping bag but it came out pretty good over all. I def ate 4 of them back to back 😂. Lucky enough there 40 of them so no one will know 😍.

Vanilla muffin

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs , room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 1-2 baking sheets with mini cupcake holders. About 40 small and 12 big (if you prefer that).
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a standing mixer fitted with the whisk or paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary.
  4. On medium speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  6. With the mixer on low speed, add half of the dry ingredients and beat just until combined. Add milk and beat until combined. Add the other half of the dry ingredients and beat slowly or fold by hand only until combined. Do not over mix – the less you mix, the lighter the cake will be.
  7. Divide batter into cupcake molds filling 3/4 of the way. And bake 8-10 minutes for mini and about 15-20 min for big cupcakes. Until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do NOT over bake, they will get dry!
  8. Allow to cool completely before frosting!
