Buttercream Cupcakes

I finally took my friend Mary's advice to make my buttercream better.  Before I was putting SO much powdered sugar (like 6 to 8 cups for 24 cupcakes!) to get it stable enough to pipe.  This time, I let the mixer whip on the highest setting for about 8 minutes with only about 3 cups of powdered sugar for 24 cupcakes, and sure enough, it was a good consistency to pipe, and I could actually taste the buttercream instead of pure sugar!
