As they were baking in the oven, I realized that I was going to need frosting but didn’t want to make a big batch that I wasn’t going to use. I searched online for “frosting for two cupcakes” or “how to make a small batch of frosting” but nothing turned up.
I found the Wilton workbook for the cake decorating class I took in December and decided to quarter their recipe for frosting. It made enough frosting for the two cupcakes, and if you can handle frosting like a responsible adult and not pile it on your cupcakes like I did above, you could even make half of what I did and still have plenty for each cupcake. On the other hand, if you happen to have frosting left over like Mrs. How Sweet did, this is a good way to use that up.
