Mini Vanilla Cupcakes

We had another unexpected snowfall at the beginning of the week. Since we live on the hills, we were stuck at home. The roads were too slippery to drive anywhere.
Anyway, I made these mini vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing to entertain the little one. The recipe for the vanilla cupcakes can be found here.

Edited to add:
This is what I used for the cream cheese icing.

8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar

Just cream the cream cheese and butter together till smooth. Add sugar & vanilla. Beat till light and fluffy. Leave in the fridge for about an hour before using. Usually cream cheese icing is softer than buttercream because I don’t add as much sugar. So it may necessary to put your icing back into the fridge if you find it too soft or you can just add more sugar.
