Description

There's nothing quite like a cupcake to kick off a celebration, and what's more classic than a vanilla butter cake? Simple and tender with a velvety crumb, it serves as the perfect base for frosting. To switch things up, the cupcakes are topped with a mascarpone buttercream. The result is a light-as-air, but sturdy frosting with a lusciously smooth mouthfeel. Vanilla purists rejoice, this classic combination of flavors can't be beat! Uses KitchenAid® Hand Mixer.
