Butterbeer Cupcakes with Butterbeer Frosting Recipes

What could be better than attending wizard school with Harry Potter?
Nothing. Nothing could be better than that.
Except maybe these BUTTERBEER CUPCAKES!
Alix and Debra at LitJoy got together to show you how to make these in this recent LitJoy Live (see video below). They promised to share the recipes and here they are! Many of you might now know this, but Debra also hosts a fabulous blog as Housewife Eclectic and you can check out her post here as well for more pics of these fabulous cupcakes.


  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 C. Oil
  • 1 C. Cream Soda
  • 1 small package Instant Butterscotch Pudding Mix
Mix all of the ingredients together until well blended.
Add cupcake liners to a muffin tin. I like to use red, yellow, blue and green cupcake liners to represent the house colors. Fill cupcake liners two-thirds full. Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. While the cupcakes are cooking, making the Butterbeer frosting.


You will need:
  • 2 sticks of softened butter
  • 4 TBS butterscotch sauce (find this by the ice cream)
  • 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. butter extract
  • 7 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • Piping Bag 
  • Star Tip
Mix the butter, butterscotch sauce, sugar, vanilla, and butter extract together until well whipped. While mixing, add the powdered sugar 1-2 cups at a time, mixing all the time. Mix the milk into the frosting to get the right consistency. Add the frosting to a piping bag with a tip and swirl the frosting on the cupcake. Drizzle each cupcake with butterscotch syrup.
