1 3/4 C. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 C. sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. vanilla bean paste
1/2 C. vegetable oil
1/3 C. whole milk, room temperature

1 lb. of LEGO candy
3 mixing bowls
Vanilla Frosting Ingredients
1 C. of unsalted butter (softened)
4 C. powder sugar
4 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
2 tsp. vanilla bean paste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line cupcake pan with paper liners.
In a bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In the second bowl, combine sugar and eggs with an electric mixer until combined.
In the third bowl, add oil, milk and vanilla bean paste, mix well.
Add third bowl mix to the second bowl and mix.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients stirring just enough to blend all ingredients together.
Using an ice cream scoop fill each cupcake tin 2/3rds full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.
Remove cupcakes from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to allow them to cool completely.
Frosting the cupcakes
Cream powder sugar, vanilla, maple syrup, and butter until mixture is light and creamy. If for some reason it doesn’t cream you can add a few drops of heavy whipping cream until it creams.
Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by getting a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down to see if the frosting stays on the spoon or falls off. If it stays on the spoon, you’re in good if not, add more powder sugar 1/4 cup at a time and mix well.
Once the frosting is ready, fill a pastry bag and use a size 13 tip.
Twist the open end of the pastry bag and squeeze the frosting to the tip.
Start at the outer edge of each cupcake moving in a circle inward to the center of the cupcake.
Add your lego candy to the top of the cupcake.
