1st B-day cupcakes & frosting?

chelle1019 | Sep 11, 201107:11 PM

I am going to be making the cupcakes and frosting for my son's 1st b-day in Oct. I love baking and really want to make everything from scratch. Only problem is I have not found a good "moist" recipe for vanilla cupcakes. I had given up and tried to make a box cake today with yellow cake and added an extra egg and instead of oil used butter. Bleh I didn't care for the results and would really rather make it from scratch. I am open to a different cupcake flavor as well just no chocolate cupcakes (boyfriend does not eat chocolate)

I have made a vanilla buttercream that my boyfriend loved. I thought it was just ok. Thought it tasted a little "too" buttery but it was nice and creamy and piped very nicely. I would like something that is sweet and doesn't leave that buttery feeling on your lips.
