  • Ingredients

    • 4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2½ cups granulated sugar
    • 4 eggs, room temperature
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 cups milk (I used 2%, but I think it might be better to do 1% with these)
    • red + yellow food coloring (to make orange cupcakes - optional)
    • 5 cups powdered sugar, plus 1-2 cups extra, as needed
    • ¼ cup milk (I used 2%)
    • 1-2 teaspoons almond extract (depending on how almond-y you want it)*
    • *You can use clear vanilla extract, if you prefer. The reason that I used almond extract is because it's naturally clear and therefore didn't discolor my frosting. You can also just go ahead and use vanilla extract, but your frosting will not be white.
