You're gonna miss it & Tri Delta Cupcakes

Pin It

Okay so you know when your kids are in kindergarten and elementary school and you are constantly asked to make cookies or cupcakes for some occasion and it's always the night before they need to take them to school?  And you're all stressed because you have a million other things to do and running to Wal-mart for chocolate chips is not how you had planned to spend your Tuesday night....sound familiar??

Well let me tell ya.
You're gonna miss it.

Enjoy those crazy times with your littles because before you know it they will be all grown up and off to college.

And you're at home in a much too quiet house. 

But then you hear your cell phone and you have a text message from your college girl saying
"I'm a Delta Delta Delta"!!

You get all excited for her, crank up the stereo and make cupcakes to celebrate.
On a Monday night.

Okay maybe only baking freaks like me do this, but seriously enjoy your crazy life with your littles, because you will miss it.

They grow up way too fast!

Vanilla Buttercream

3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 cups confectioners sugar
1 T whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In the bowl of your stand mixer add butter and mix for about 1 minute.
Add confectioners sugar one cup at a time.
Add whipping cream and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy.
Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

(This recipe is enough to frost 24 cupcakes as I have them frosted above using a Wilton 1M tip)

All boxed up and ready for delivery :)
