Mini Vanilla Cupcakes are super moist, fluffy, vanilla-flavoured filled cake. Each is frosted with sweet vanilla buttercream.

Mini Vanilla Cupcakes are the perfect bite-sized treat made with moist cupcakes of flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk and pipped with a swirl of simple vanilla buttercream.

I find they are the perfect size for parties or when you are serving a variety of desserts. These Mini Vanilla Cupcakes are wonderfully sweet and buttery and are frosted with a swirl of creamy smooth Confectioners Frosting.
