The Shower Series- Rainbow Buttercream Cupcakes

Can a Baby Shower be a real shower without fun cupcakes? I don’t think so. I mean I know some people are cake people but cupcakes are so much more personal.

For the baby shower I may have gone crazy with the icing on the cupcakes but they make everything so very pretty.  I am a fan of Rainbow frosting.  Truly the easiest thing in the world if you like original.  Ad a few spoonfuls of one colour of icing to your tube, then add a second colour and maybe even a third.  The frosting will come out in a kaleidoscope of colour for you adding texture and originality
I used Yellow and Blue sticking with the nautical theme.
 My recipe for Buttercream Frosting
1 cup butter ( and you must whip the butter for fifteen minutes, that is the secret)
2-3 tsp Vanilla ( Mexican is what I insist on)
5 cups icing sugar
2-3 tbsp whipping cream ( or coffee cream or even Baileys)
( if you want chocolate add 2-3 tbsp cocoa)
There ya have it the easiest, tastiest icing you can have.
Do these not look awesome and mouthwatering…..
