Birthday Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for Hubby's birthday using the Magnolia Bakery recipe. When we were in New York last year, we lived 10 blocks from a Magnolia, and used to have their cupcakes often. I must say (without being humble) that these cupcakes turned out REALLY YUMMY! And are a good substitute if you can't get the real thing! Recipe for cupcakes is here. However, I found their buttercream frosting recipe was too sweet and runny - I used this instead: mix 1.5 cups icing sugar, 1 stick of butter, 1 tsp vanilla and 2 tbsp of milk.
