Perfect Cupcakes Every Time and Best Ever Buttercream Recipe

Cupcake Baking Tips - Perfect Cupcake Every Time

If you’re like me, baking cupcakes can be an anxiety inducing affair. I never know if my cupcakes are going to become round mounds of cakey goodness, or fall flat and sulk in their little paper liners. Frosting can only fix so much before you end up with a mound of whipped sugar that’s taller than your cupcake! Here’s an amazing Vanilla Bean Buttercream Dream Frosting by way of the lovely Kelly Neil, a quick and easy demo for creating perfectly mounded cupcakes every time, and Ina Garten’s Coconut Cupcake Recipe – wowza!

Perfect Buttercream Frosting
Read the full tutorial from Kelly Neil here.

2 cups unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1 lb icing sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients, but take care to not over mix. For a firmer texture you may use shortening instead of butter.
