If there’s anything that truly makes me think about the holiday's, it’s these Harry Potter Inspired Butterbeer Cupcakes with Sweet Butterbeer Buttercream Frosting! Sweet butterscotch cupcakes made with just a few pantry staples, a whole lot of butterbeer, a touch of vanilla extract, and some melted butterscotch to bring out those amazing flavors. From there, they are baked to perfection, frosted with a butterbeer infused buttercream, and finished with hand-piped Harry Potter inspired doodles like the Deathly Hallow or Harry's iconic glasses and scar... SO. GOOD. These cupcakes are moist, full of the best butterscotch flavor you're looking for, absolutely delicious, and simple enough to make any time of year or for any occasion! Celebrate the return to Hogwarts, the Fall season, or even Christmas because these cupcakes will have you feeling like you're at The Leaky Cauldron with the golden trio.
