French Vanilla Butter Rum Cupcakes Directions
Get ready
Assemble all ingredients. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. 

Prepare the batter
Combine all ingredients and beat for two (2) minutes. 

Pour into lined cupcake pans and bake for twenty-two to twenty-four (22 to 24) minutes. Cool slightly on a rack.

Prepare the glaze
Melt one stick of butter in a saucepan. Then, stir in the water and sugar. Boil for five (5) minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and slowly stir in the rum. Allow to cool down a little.

Dip the tops of the cooled cupcakes in the glaze and set aside.

Prepare the frosting
Cream butter and shortening; beat in the vanilla. Add sugar, one cup at a time until blended. 

When the sugar is completely beaten in and the sides of the bowl are scraped down, add the whipping cream. Beat at the highest speed until super fluffy, about one (1) minute.

If you wish to tint your frosting, do so now.

Finish the cupcakes
Pipe frosting on top of glazed cupcake. Then, drizzle a little more glaze over the butter cream frosting and top with coarse sugar sprinkles.

French Vanilla Butter Rum Cupcakes Notes
