    I made these cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday yesterday. This was the absolute best butter cream recipe that I have ever made. It whipped up so light and fluffy that I was amazed. BUT, the bubblegum flavoring was a bit much, even for the kids. I would only add half the package or double the frosting mixture to tone it down. They were adorable though, especially for my special needs, asperger’s daughter who LOVES bubblegum! Thanks for the idea!!
