For something different, just a frosting recipe. A yummy different frosting recipe. This would work wonderfully with either your favorite chocolate or vanilla cupcake. Or just about any flavor of cupcake. It’s all about the frosting this time around, at least that is what Oh SO Delicioso said.
1/2 c salted butter, room temperature (or use unsalted and add more salt)
1 c creamy peanut butter
1 t vanilla extract
1 t maple extract
1/2 t coarse salt
3 c powdered sugar
1/3-1/2 c heavy cream
