These cupcakes were easy. The cupcake is just a Betty Crocker cake mix. The frosting is home made.


  • 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine softened
  • 1 teaspoon of clear vanilla extract
  • 4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  1. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and butter with an electric mixer.
  2. Add the vanilla.
  3. Gradually add the sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed.
  4. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl often.
  5. Next add the milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  6. Color the frosting different colors. I used a star tip to get the cupcakes to look like that.
