Cotton Candy Cupcakes

Cotton Candy Cupcakes

 Bake vanilla cupcakes using your favorite recipe. Cool, then frost with this Cotton Candy Buttercream. Yum!

Cotton Candy Buttercream
adapted via Sugar Sweet Sunshine

1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
4 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons milk
3 teaspoons vanilla
pink food coloring (or 1 drop of red)
Tiffany blue food coloring (or two blue drops, one green drop)
cotton candy, pulled into small pieces

Using the paddle attachment on a mixer hand beater, cream the butter. Add half of the sugar and half of the milk. Cream these ingredients until well blended. Add the rest of the sugar and the milk and combine. Add the vanilla and mix in. Separate the frosting into two containers. Add food colorings to each bowl and mix until even. Add cotton candy pieces until well combined. Frost cupcakes. Garnish with remaining cotton candy.
