A delicious vanilla cupcake topped with amazing buttercream.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a (12 count) muffin tin with cupcake wrappers.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda and powder until well combined.
In a large bowl, using a mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
Add half of the flour mixture, stir, pour in buttermilk, stir. Mix in the rest of the flour mixture and the sprinkles and stir everything together carefully.
Distribute evenly into muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
While cupcakes are cooling, prepare frosting. In large bowl, with mixer at medium-low speed, beat sugar, butter, vanilla, and 4 tablespoons milk until blended. Beat until light and fluffy on medium speed, occasionally scraping bowl. Once frosting is mixed, add a few squirts of red food coloring to create the pink color!
Frost cupcakes and decorate with toppers! (or just eat, which works too!)
These cupcakes are all about decoration. My favorites are the monster cupcakes. They are colorful, fun and so easy to achieve the cuteness. No piping skills required. I guarantee you. You can go as crazy as you want. After all they are monsters.
