Cream Cheese Frosting
  1. Whip butter and cream cheese together.
  2. Add confectioner's sugar.
  3. Add milk or cream if needed.
Notes: I use swerve (erythritol) for sweetener which is calorie free.
You may use regular sugar for cupcakes and regular confectioner's sugar for frosting if you decide.

This makes a very small amount of frosting, but these cupcakes are small an you don't need a lot.
