Ingredients

CUPCAKES

VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

Instructions

CUPCAKES

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees and line muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  • Mix cake mixture, water, oil, egg whites (or whole eggs) and Hudsonville Ice Cream in a large bowl with hand or stand mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. 
  • Fill each cupcake liner 2/3 full with cake batter.  Bake for 18-20 minutes or or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer the cupcakes to a cooling rack to allow the cupcakes to cool completely. Set aside.

VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

  • In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the milk.
  • Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. 
  • Once the cupcakes have cooled, add the frosting onto the cupcakes using a round piping tip.  NOTE: If for any reason you do not have a piping tip, you can also spread the frosting or icing with a pastry or butter knife.
  • Place chocolate shavings on top of the buttercream frosting along with three mini easter eggs.  And enjoy!
