  • Beat white sugar and 7 tablespoons butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add eggs, vanilla extract, and baking powder and beat until smooth. Sift flour into creamed butter mixture until batter is smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons batter into each muffin cup.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool cupcakes in the tin for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Mix confectioners' sugar and 1/2 cup butter together in a bowl until frosting is smooth; spread onto cooled cupcakes.

I would have liked to give this 3.5 stars. The taste is nicely buttery but the cakes are a bit too greasy. Be careful not to over mix or the crumb will be weird- too dense or course. I found the icing was too sweet and lacked flavour. I cut out the middle and cut into wedges.. the hollowed out middle and filled with the icing. Put the wedges on the cup cake using icing to make it stick to give it "wings" Read More
