miracle whip vanilla cupcakes

 
i am not a baker.. boy am i not a baker.. but my beautiful niece's baptism was last weekend and i really wanted to bring cupcakes.. soooo here we go..
 
 
i made chocolate cupcakes .. but this time i wanted to make vanilla also.. i thought well i used grandmommy's chocolate miracle whip cake to make the chocolate ones why couldn't i use the same recipe for my vanilla ones.. and then it clicked..
 

if i omit the cocoa and amp up the vanilla i bet it would work.. i had to make some other adjustments but it worked! and it worked our wonderfully!! and soo easy!!!

chocolate frosting

ingredients:

2 sticks {1 cup} softened butter
1/2 cup {8 tblsp.} of cocoa powder
5 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup heavy cream {or milk}
{if you want to make vanilla frosting omit the cocoa powder and amp up the vanilla to 1 tblsp.}

directions:

in a medium mixing bowl, whip butter and cocoa until smooth.. add vanilla and slowly the powdered sugar {i used my stand mixer and added the powdered sugar 2 cups at a time with the last time only being 1 cup}.. while the mixer is running and the powdered sugar is thoroughly mixed in slowly stream in cream/milk until frosting reaches your desired consistency... scrape sides down and mix/whip again until fluffy and smooth.. frosts 24 cupcakes..
