12 Cupcakes

  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar

  2. Melt the butter and add the milk. Mix.
  3. Add the butter and milk into the egg mixture. Mix until evenly distributed.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, add all purpose flour, salt and baking powder. Mix.
  5. Add the flour mixture into the batter. Mix on low speed until even.
  6. Place a liner in each slot of a cupcake pan and fill it with batter.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Using a hand mixer, mix together room temperature butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, cream cheese and lemon juice until it’s smooth and creamy.
  2. Scoop the frosting into a piping bag with a spatula and twist the ending. I use a 849 tip which is a closed star.
  3. Make a circle of frosting on the edge of the cupcake. Add some chocolate eggs in the center.
