Vanilla Bean Cupcakes

Recently I decided to make cupcakes for my soon-to-be Sister,Melissas' Bridal shower.I really havn't made cupcakes in a while, but since thay are all the rage and I wanted to try out a new Vanilla bean cake recipe I found,I thought it would be a great idea and something a little different.



Please look past the bad picture and the foil covered platter. It was a long week and I was recovering from a very nasty cold that knocked me out for a few day before.
The next picture is of the cupcakes at the shower. I really wished the picture had turned out better and that they were properly displayed, but they were a real hit.


The recipe I found for the cupcakes was a homemade recipe that uses ingredience you may already have in your kitchen. The frosting was the frosting I used in the previous post for the Mocha Chocolate cake and the little pink flowers are made of fondant that I left from a Birthday cake I made a few weeks ago.

Vanilla Bean Cake
Dry Ingredients:

2 3/4 cup flour

1 3/4 cups Vanilla bean sugar (vanilla bean infused sugar)or regular is fine

2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup butter

5 egg whites

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons Vanilla

1/2 teaspoon almond ( I didn't have Almond extract,so I used Lemon)

Cream Butter.
Add eggs(whites) one at a time till combined
add milk~vanilla~almond or Lemon flavoring
Fill two 8 in rounds, greased and floured
325 deg. to 350
bake 20~30 min

*Fill cupcake tins lined with cupcake papers
bake for aprox. 25 min till lightly browned and if you touch the tops it will be firm.
