Vanilla Bean Cupcakes-
*Here is a link to the website I found it from:)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened to room temperture
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons of Vanilla Bean Paste(If you do not have the paste you can use 2tsps of Vanilla Extract)
1/2 cup buttermilk

2 cups of fruity pebbles

In a large bowl mix the first 4 ingredients together. If you use a whisk it will ensure that all of the ingredients get evenly distributed! 

In your mixer blend together the butter and sugar, make sure to have the mixer on high and mix it for about 5 minutes. One at a time mix in the eggs, egg yolk and vanilla.

Alternating from the dry to the wet add into the butter mixture some of the dry then some of the wet and so on until it is all mixed. Fold in 2 cups of fruity pebbles.

Step 4: 
Bake these cupcakes at 340 degrees for about 18-23 minutes. I find that when I bake cupcakes at 340 degrees it helps the cupcake to bake higher and more evenly.

Vanilla Frosting:

Here is where I found this Vanilla frosting

3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream

In a mixer mix the sugar and butter until smooth. Next add the vanilla and whipping cream.

Pipe the frosting on the cupcake and top it off with fruity pebbles!
