Cupcakes for Auction

We had the most fun auction at church the other night. This is what I made for it. Pistachio cupcakes with almond buttercream frosting. Just a few day's ago I posted pistachio cupcakes that I found at She Wears Many Hats. I followed her directions for the cupcakes but for the frosting I made an almond buttercream.
These were so simple but very moist. Take a white cake mix. Follow directions on box and then add a box of pistachio pudding. Fill cupcake papers half full and cook following box directions. Easy or what?
If you want more specific directions on the cake and frosting go to 
 She Wears Many Hats.
Add your frosting and if you like I added a cute little candy to match the little cups you can purchase at Tom Kats Studio or Zurchers. The cake stand I made from a glass plate, candlestick and a little glass glue.

  9. I make a pistachio cake that is similar to this and I love it, but I will have to try the almond frosting next time, since I love almond extract.
