Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Pop cupcakes out of the pan and let them finish cooling on the rack for another 10 minutes.

While waiting on the cupcakes to cool, you can whip up the frosting!

In a large bowl combine all of the frosting ingredients and beat until smooth.
