Vanilla Cupcakes with Candy Cane Icing Zachary Style

For cupcakes :

Cream together 1/2 Cup of Butter and 1 Cup of sugar .

Add 3 Eggs one at a time , stir after each addition .
Add 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla .
In small separate bowl combine , 1 and 1/2 Cup of Flour , sprinkle of Salt and 3/4 of a Teaspoon of Baking Soda
Pour the Dry into the Wet and mix well till just incorporated .

Add 1 Cup of Coconut Milk , and stir till well blended .

At this point we separated the batter into 3 so we could colour it , just simple food colouring .
Zach chose tree cupcake holders , hence the colours above .

Batter is enough for 12 cupcakes. We just dumped each colour in by spoonfuls . Place in a 350 degrees oven for about 22 minutes. (preheated )

We made our own Crushed Candy Cane Icing , and Coloured Sugar . The sugar is so easy , white sugar and food colouring mixed with it . The Icing is some Butter , Icing Sugar and Vanilla , with Crushed Candy Cane Bits .

 Once cooled, he iced the top and went to town with the sugar sprinkles.

This is my variation on Vanilla Cupcakes. There are so many others ones out there , this is just my take .
