Sometimes simple is best. Take these mini vanilla cupcakes, for example. Baked in a mini-cupcake pan, they can be eaten in one bite — unless you want to savor them by eating them slower. The batter consists of flour, salt, baking powder, milk, vanilla, butter, sugar and eggs, nothing shocking there, right? The frosting is equally simple and tasty – tinted vanilla buttercream. Break it into batches and add some food coloring in order to make these treats slightly more colorful.
