Vanilla mini cupcakes

All of you that love  make cupcakes know this is very serious, you make someones and other day say I want to make others and etc,etc.
So, after the others I show you I bought a wonderful and nice mini cupcakes pan and I love it.
I made these mini cupacakes that are wonderful for birthdays, parties or other time.
You can garnish like you want and the recipe is simple. enjoy!
I garnish with lavender,m & m, little silver balls, sugar flowers, etc.

I adapted this recipe from Joy of Baking  recipes.

IngredientsButtercream Frosting:
110g/4oz butter or margarine, softened at room temperature
200g/ granulated sugar
2  eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1  1/2 cup all purpose  flour
1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2  tablespoon of milk.

Buttercream Frosting:

230 grs  confectioners sugar (icing or powdered sugar), sifted
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk or light cream
Assorted food colors

1.Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 12-hole muffin tin  or 24 if are little with paper cases.

2.Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale. Beat in the eggs a little at a time and stir in the vanilla extract.

3.Fold in the flour  and baking powder using a large spoon, adding a little milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full.

.Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.

In an electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth and well blended.
Add the vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the milk and beat on high speed until frosting is light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add a little more milk or sugar, if needed. Tint the frosting with desired food color.

Mini cupcakes de vainilla

Si algunos de ustedes (lo más probable que sí) ha hecho cupcakes entenderá que esto de los cupcakes es absolutamente adictivo, uno prueba recetas, decoraciones o ve otra receta en fin.
Solo los que aman la cocina me entenderán. Otros pensarán que estoy loca.
Hice estos minicupcakes cuando me compré un molde especial de mini cupcakes o pastelitos.
Y me lanzé por supuesto. A veces soy muy arriesgada.(en serio)
Estos mini cupcakes son estupendos para cumpleaños, fiestas o lo que sea.
Se pueden adornar como uno quiera. Yo usé flores de  lavanda, m&m, mostacillas, perlitas, flores de azúcar, etc. Desplieguen su imaginación.


110 grs de mantequilla o margarina
200 grs. de azúcar granulada
2 huevos ligeramente batidos
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
1 1/2 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear
1 1/2 cucharadita polvos de hornear
2 cucharadas de leche

Frosting o cubierta

230 grs. de azúcar impalpable
o azúcar glass
1/2 taza de mantequilla temperatura ambiente
1 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
2 cucharadas de leche o crema


Calentar el horno a 180°C, preparar con cápsulas de papel los moldes para cupcakes si es grande (12) si son pequeños 24.
Unir la mantequilla y el azúcar en un bol.
Agregar los huevos batidos y el extracto de vainilla.
Unir  a la harina y los polvos de hornear. agregar la leche. Unir bien.
Con una cuchara llenar las cápsulas de papel dejando un borde.
Hornear de 10 a 15 minutos o hasta que estén dorados y secos.
Dejar enfriar antes de decorar.


Con una batidora o a mano batir la mantequilla hasta que esté suave.
Agregar el extracto de vainilla.
Agregar gradualmente el azúcar uniendo bien.
Agregar la leche y batir unos 3 a 4 minutos hasta que la crema sea consistente y suave.
Si se quiere más espeso agregar más azúcar, más suave o cremoso agregar un poco de leche.
Para decorar es mejor que esté espeso.
Despues de decorar dejar reposar para que tengan consistencia.
