Just look at all the yummy ingrediants in these cupcakes!
At the last class the instructor gave us this recipe for buttercream frosting.
I didn't even have a piece of paper to write it on! I tore off a piece of cardboard from a box and wrote down this recipe:
Never Fail Buttercream frosting
1 lb powdered sugar (that is one box or 4 cups)
1/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp butter extract (omit this if you use butter shortning)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter or shortning ( I ALWAYS use Crisco shortning)
Place all of the ingrediants in a bowl and mix until smooth
This will make a stiff icing suitable for piping.
Add milk a little at a time to desired consistancy.
I still have this recipe written on the cardboard!
Maybe I should write it on a proper recipe card!
So here are the changes I made for making the frosting for the
Instead of using the 1/4 cup milk I added 2 T. fresh lime juice.
The icing was VERY stiff and since I didn't think Milk would go very
well with the lime juice and I really needed to thin this down abit AND
I still had some margarita mix......I added the margarita mix in small amounts
until I reached the desired consistancy!
I hope that you make these cupcakes and ENJOY them!
