Valentine’s Cupcakes

P2011855 Since we are still stuck at home I thought it would be fun to make some cupcakes. Jack LOVED using the mixer and he really enjoyed adding the food coloring to the frosting.

Kat’s Fav Frosting

1 stick butter

1 8oz pkg cream cheese

1 tsp vanilla

3 c powdered sugar

Allow butter & cream cheese to come to room temperature. Cream with mixer, add vanilla and powdered sugar 1/2 c at a time. If you are making the frosting only 1 color I advise to add the food coloring before the sugar. (It seems to give a really even color) That being said I typically am doing at least 2 colors with a batch and add the color at the end. Whatever works for you!

    Looks like you are busy making treats. Isn’t there always a reason to? My kids and I made 3 treats today alone! Yikes, my mouth is happy, but my butt and thighs are going to pay for it! 😉 I LOVE cooking with my kids. I love that you let Jack do the mixing. Amazing how much they can love it, hu! 😉
