Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes

How amazing do these vanilla confetti cupcakes look? a very big headed statement! These have to be up there with one of my faves I've ever made. Why? because I have finally perfected my vanilla buttercream icing, hallelujah!
As you may or may not know I have been baking on and off for quite a while now and it would be my absolute dream to own some form of cake shop. I'm trying not to give up on my dreams but sometimes it seems just that, a dream.
