Strawberry Frosted Cupcakes V2.0

I made vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing for Valentines Day.

They were a huge hit.. So today I made them again! This time they were for Miss Morgan.

But this time I used a different vanilla cupcake recipe. It's more buttery in flavour (because it requires buttermilk) and very crumbly.

strawberry frosted cupcakes 2.0 >> STARTS WITH CUPCAKES

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 180.  Line about 16-24 muffin cups and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.  In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl as needed. Mix in eggs and egg yolk one at a time and then mix in the vanilla.  Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.  Combine.  Add 1/2 of the buttermilk.  Mix.  Add another 1/3 of the dry indredients.  Mix. Add the final 1/2 of the buttermilk.  Mix and then add the final 1/3 of the dry ingredients.  Mix until combined and the batter is smooth.  Spoon out batter into lined cupcake pan, filling only halfway or just barely over halfway.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes

This time, I tried a different decorating method with the same icing recipe from V Day.
