I've got a *serious* case of the cupcakes today, which is a bit strange for me, as I have practically NO sweet tooth to speak of. I've been daydreaming of fluffy little cake bites, wrapped in delicate paper cups and capped with a ginormous swirl of gooey frosting...

I know I live in the Land of the 'Cuppycake' (as one of my favorite Twitter peeps Blair awesomely refers to them), where there is a Magnolia Bakery and a Crumbs within
lazy girl bus riding walking distance of my apartment. However, the whole $2.50 a pop pricing scheme doesn't actually fit into my recession chic budget. Thus, In order to get my sugar fix I'm going to go the "I Mix Sh*t" route.
I would *love* to know what your favorite go-to frosting recipe is, for just such an impromptu baking session? I'm a plain Jane vanilla cake girl myself, but am partial to any and all frosting options... Please let me know what curbs your cupcake sweet tooth/makes you feel like a hostess with the mostess!
