Bourbon Vanilla cupcakes

For Bourbon vanilla cupcakes, i make a basic recipe and add 2 tbl spoons of Bourbon vanilla molasses.

Basic recipe: 115g butter, room temperature - 115g sugar - 2 eggs - 115g flour - 1 teaspoon baking powder - 2 tbl spoons milk.

Mix butter and sugar untill fluffy and add vanilla flavour. Add eggs one at a time. Sift flour and bakingpowder and fold in. Bake at 160dg for about 15 min.

This frosting is cream cheese flavoured with bourbon vanilla, but any buttercream or ganache will go well with these cupcakes.

For piping instructions, see comments below.

    Thanks so much :-)

    The technique is quite easy and fast too. Use a fairly large star-nozzle, begin in center of cupcake, keep hand with the frosting steady, working your way out, and the rose makes it self! :-)
