INGREDIENTS:

1 BATCH STRAWBERRY CUPCAKES, PREPARED (24 CUPCAKES)

FOR THE FROSTING:

  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 3-4 Tbsp milk

FOR THE GANACHE:

  • 1 package (11oz) dark chocolate morsels

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Cool completely on a wire rack before adding frosting.
  2. For the frosting, beat butter with an electric mixer for 3-5 minutes, until pale yellow and smooth. Add in powdered sugar, vanilla bean paste, and milk. Beat for an additional 3-5 minutes, until fluffy.
