Vanilla Cupcakes with the best frosting

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Actually I didn't choose the name, it is known as the best frosting you've ever had. I personally loved it. I can't eat a lot of frosting in cakes in general, and I do prefer plain cakes or the simple not too sweet little frosting, but whenever I use this recipe, I can finish my whole cupcake and have another one as well lol..I made the cupcakes with my favourite recipe. I did it specially for a relative and my neighbour who both had baby boys. So I got their newborns an outfit, and thought of making these cakes with a BLUE frosting, but I don't know why did the colour I used which was blue, turned into green :D..Anyway, my relative said she loved it alhamdulilah..I didn't see my neighbour yet so I hope she did like the cupcakes.

Cupcake recipe (yields 30 cupcakes):
200 g butter
1 cup caster sugar
4 eggs
3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
cupcakes waiting, the ones on the left corner had smarties in them, I didn't frost them

5 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup granulated white sugar (which I like best about this frosting, you don't need icing sugar).

this is the milk and flour waiting to cool to be mixed with vanilla+butter+sugar

yes!!! granulated sugar


  1. Essalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah, Masha'allah these look great! I will have to try this frosting idea Insha'allah, looks very yummy! Please sister, fix your blog title to "My Kitchen's Experiments" I have been meaning to tell you that, but couldn't find a place to send you an email instead of posting it in the comments section.
