Recipe Time! Vanilla Cupcakes (adapted from Joy The Baker) and Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (thanks mom!)
For The Cupcakes:
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar 
4 large eggs 
1 cup skim milk 
1 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt
Quickie Instructions:
Preheat to 350 degrees, baking time 25 minutes, yields 24 delicious munchies.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt in a bowl
Mix vanilla and milk in another bowl
Cream butter and sugar together, gradually add eggs - switch off adding a little milk mixture and a little flour mixture.
If you want to tint yours a color like I did, I think I put roughly 1/2-1 tbsp of food coloring in there. I was afraid that it would change the consistency (the batter was very liquid-y) but it didn’t, and they still taste good. (: 
For the Frosting:
1 16oz box confectioners sugar (4 cups)
1 stick softened butter
2-3 tbsp milk 
1/2 tsp vanilla 
As always, I’ll tell you that if you’re not careful with the milk, your frosting will be runny. ): And hand mixers/stand mixers are your best friends in making this.
Enjoy!! And Happy Belated St. Patricks Day.
