1 Serving cupcakes

Ok, so maybe it made 3 servings, not just one...

I found the cupcake recipe on www.howsweeteats.com last night while going through a major cupcake craving. And not just the cake. I wanted the frosting and the decorations also.
1 egg white (I used a whole egg.. which gave the cupcakes a bit of an eggy taste)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1-1/2 tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350

In a bowl, combine egg and sugar and whisk together. Add in vanilla and melted butter (make sure it's not too hot... or it starts to cook your eggs and looks gross). Add all dry ingredients and stir until just blended. Add in milk.
Divide the cupcakes between your liners (the recipe says it'll make 2 cupcakes, I ended up with 3)

Bake for 12-15 minutes (or until done). Let cool, then frost.

Frosting (This was all eyeballed, as I don't love super sweet frosting)

5tbsp room temperature butter
1 tsp vanilla
icing sugar to taste
food coloring (optional)

Beat together all the ingredients until smooth and creamy.

To frost, I placed the frosting into a ziplock bag and cut one of the corners off.
Decorate with sprinkles and fruit
