Yields 1 dozen cupcakes
1 recipe pumpkin cupcakes
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
Few drops of red food coloring
In a large mixing bowl using a hand or stand mixer, cream the butter on medium to high speed.
3. Add the powdered sugar and continue mixing. Add the vanilla extract and then add the milk a little bit at a time until you reach the consistency of buttercream you like.
4. Add a few drops of red food coloring to get the pink color you desire.
5. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a small round tip.
6. Make sure your cupcakes are cooled. Then pipe zig-zags in sections, over the cupcakes. You may splash some red coloring or red jelly over the top for a dramatic effect. Enjoy.
