  13. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to allow them to cool completely.

Frosting the cupcakes

  1. Cream powder sugar, vanilla, maple syrup, and butter until mixture is light and creamy. If for some reason it doesn’t cream you can add a few drops of heavy whipping cream until it creams. 
  2. Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by getting a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down to see if the frosting stays on the spoon or falls off. If it stays on the spoon, you’re in good if not, add more powder sugar 1/4 cup at a time and mix well. 
  3. Once the frosting is ready, fill a pastry bag and use a size 13 tip.
  4. Twist the open end of the pastry bag and squeeze the frosting to the tip.
  5. Start at the outer edge of each cupcake moving in a circle inward to the center of the cupcake. 
  6. Add your lego candy to the top of the cupcake.
  7. ENJOY!
