Butterscotch Cocktail Cupcakes

and today i bring you cake vodka cupcakes with white chocolate and butterscotch schnapps frosting.  topped with edible gold glitter.  with extra large photos to make you want them right meow.

cake vodka cupcakes - to make about 12 cupcakes beat together 4 ounces softened butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder (which is different than baking soda, it matters how it reacts to the vodka), 2 eggs, and 2 tablespoons of cake vodka.  i went with smirnoff iced cake.  if it seems too thick, you can add a bit more vodka.  put the batter into your lined cupcake tin and bake at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes.

white chocolate butterscotch schnapps frosting - cream one stick of room temperature butter with a mixer until it's fluffy.  slowly add in 2.5 cups of powdered sugar (add a half cup at a time, with the mixer on low speed, i'm not responsible for what happens if you ignore this advice, and i'm not helping you clean your kitchen.) then 4 ounces of melted white chocolate.  once that's all mixed, add in your butterscotch schnapps.  start with a tablespoon or two, adding more schnapps for thinner frosting, more powdered sugar for thicker frosting.  mine is about 4 tablespoons of schnapps.  like you'd expect anything less from me.

frost your cakes and then top them with edible glitter, because hello, why would you not?!  and now i can check "make glitter cupcakes" off my 101 in 1001 list.

edible glitter is pretty easy to find, by the way, just search for it on etsy for quite literally every color you could desire!  glitter can fix a myriad of mistakes.  the cupcakes look so adorable that you probably didn't even notice that i was too lazy to pipe frosting on and instead smeared it with a butter knife.
