Vanilla Frosting for Funfetti Cupcakes

I assume you came back to hear about the frosting for funfetti cupcakes. Well, I'll get right to it.

Vanilla Frosting (for Funfetti Cupcakes)
Adapted from The Cake Mix Doctor
Frosts 24 cupcakes

1 stick butter at room temperature
3.75 cups powdered sugar, sifted
3-4 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

Place butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat with the whisk attachment on low speed until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Stop the machine and add the powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Beat on low until combined, then increase the temperature to medium-high and beat until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. If the frosting is too stiff, beat in the extra tablespoon of milk. 

Use to frost funfetti cupcakes or whatever your baked good of choice may be. 


  1. YUM! I've made homemade funfetti cake before (even though the boxed stuff is pretty good). However, homemade frosting takes the cake - no pun intended!

  2. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best and most used... thanks for sharing:)
