This weekend we had a valentine’s day party with the kids and made cupcakes with homemade frosting. I found this recipe and did some tinkering and here’s what I came up with:


  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 3  teaspoons of vanilla
  • 4 cups of icing sugar
  • 4-5 tablespoons of  half and half (4 seems to be good)


  1. Mix room teperature butter with an electric mixer.
  2. Add sugar one cup at a timeand mix
  3. Add vanilla and mix
  4. Add half and half and mix until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add the die
