For the cupcakes:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup maple syrup

For the frosting:

3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons whipping cream

To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350F. Line muffin tin with liners; set aside.

Whip together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl, and set aside.

Cream your butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl, until fluffy. One at a time, beat your eggs into the mixture, and then add in your vanilla extract.

Add the buttermilk and maple syrup. Stir.

Blend the flower mixture in slowly, until all traces of dry ingredients are no longer visible.

Pour batter into your cupcake liners, until 3/4 of the way full.

Bake cupcakes for 15-18 minutes, or until you can insert a toothpick, and it comes out clean.

Take cupcakes out of muffin tin, and place on cooling rack.

To make the frosting, Use your standing mixer with the whisk attachment to mix the sugar and butter together. Use the low speed setting until mixture is blended well. Increas speed to medium, and continue beating for 3 minutes. Add your vanilla and cream, and continue beating on medium for one more minute, adding cream if the mixture is too thick.

Top with blue rock candy for a pretty decoration – I was able to find this at my local craft store on special. If you can’t find it, you could also use blue Pop Rocks!
