Buttercream is my evereset! I have always enjoyed watching people frost cupcakes, because I didn’t know how to frost very well. However I had to learn how to frost because with this recipe, I had to make Minnie Mouse Cupcakes with my friend Jak from the Vegetarian Baker on YouTube. I practiced on 30 cupcakes before I actually got the hang of it. Practice does make perfect, so for those of us who have trouble frosting, but want to be a great froster, the secret is just practice.
