Almond Cupcakes with Butter Cream Frosting

Almond Cupcakes with Butter Cream Frosting
makes 24 cupcakes

1 Box White Cake Mix
Butter, Melted
1 Teaspoon Almond Extract

Follow instructions on box mix except substitute melted butter for the oil and add almond extract to the mix. Bake as directed.

3 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Teaspoon Almond Extract
1 to 2 Tablespoons Milk

Beat powdered sugar and butter together on low speed until well blended then increase to speed to medium and beat for another 2 minutes.  Add almond and milk and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 more minute, adding more milk if needed.

M and I just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.  To commemorate, I thought it would be fun to make these cupcakes since our wedding cake was a white almond.  For our main course we had Jimmy John's, which we also had on our wedding day.  I have to admit I sometimes feel like I'm cheating when I bake with a mix.  However, when I add a little something extra and make it my own they can taste delectable.
