Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting are super light, fluffy and sweet! Typically I am such a chocolate cake girl (my favorite are these Triple Chocolate Cupcakes!) . There are times, though, that I crave a pure vanilla cupcake or slice of cake. These little gems are perfect for a spring treat and fairly easy to make.
I know there are great recipes out there for purely from scratch cake recipes. I just prefer using cake mixes and amping them up with additional ingredients. It’s a trick I learned when I made wedding cakes years ago. They turn out perfectly and considerately every time!
My middle son really prefers vanilla to anything else, so he felt extra special when I made these. I finally had to hide them because he kept eating them when I wasn’t around! They really are such a classic cupcake that no one can resist!
