Vanilla Frosting

Frosting Ingredients:
1 Cup soft unsalted butter
4 + Cup powder sugar
4 TBSP heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp. Vanilla 
Grass Green gel food colouring
12 candy pumpkins

Frosting Directions:
Cream the butter, vanilla, and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy.
If it doesn’t cream, add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
Add several drops of the green gel food colouring. Mix well to blend the colours.
Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then add more powder sugar 1/2 Cup at a time and mix well.
Test to make sure that the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak.
If ready scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large star tip.
Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip.
Instead of holding the pastry bag and tip to the side hold it straight up pointing the tip down to the cupcake making the frosting look like grass.
Start by frosting on the outside edge of the cupcake working to the center of the cupcake.
You can add an candy pumpkin in the center of the grass patch (center of the frosting).
