- In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together on medium speed until mixed.
- Add this bowl to the dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until just blended.
- Fill cupcake liners (aff) a little more than 3/4's way.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
- Allow to cool in the cupcake pan for 10 minutes.
- Remove to cooling rack (aff) to finish cooling about 30 minutes.
- Beat butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar until light and creamy. If it doesn't cream, add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it does.

- If the frosting isn't ready, add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time and mix well until it is.
