Vanilla Bean Cupcakes

I'm obsessed. I think I say this about everything that I bake, but this one really takes the [cup]cake. My birthday is tomorrow, so in celebration I decided to use my precious vanilla bean, with my pink birthday crown cupcakes liners (thanks mom)!

I had bought a vanilla bean a while ago, but because they are a bit expensive, I had to find just the right recipe to use it with. I saw these cupcakes and knew that this was it. I lovee a simple delicious vanilla flavor and a simple cupcake means I can go crazy on the frosting. While I was making the batter, I just knew it was going to be amazing. It was so creamy it was hard to not just eat all of the batter, and you can even see the small vanilla bean specks. yummmmmm. I had read that not only the beans have flavor, but the shell too, so I stuck the leftover shell into a bag of sugar to make vanilla sugar. I'll have to find a recipe that uses that!

I think whoever created this recipe must have meant 36 when they said this recipe yielded 24 cupcakes because that's how many came out. A couple more than I really need in my household, so please come eat some! It is getting late and the cupcakes need to cool before I can frost them, but I could not wait to show these off! Keep looking for an update with the frosting!
