Easy Vanilla Princess Minicakes

Today I am so proud to present Aishwarya's Vanilla Princess Mini cakes, which she baked all by herself. As a mom it is indeed a major milestone for me which sure would go into her baby book! I am sure all you mom's reading this would agree with me on the significance of this milestone.
Aishwayra was having her winter break and we were doing some shopping at Sur La Table for some bake ware. She spotted these min-cupcake molds and seized it and wanted to try it out immediately . Never thought she would want to bake a cake all by herself, but she surprised us by doing it all by herself, my only contribution being to point her to this recipe.
She named it Princess mini cakes, her logic being that princesses would prefer eating in small bites and these mini- cakes are perfect for that. It is so easy to make that any beginning baker, even a ten year old, can make it very easily.
Recipie Soure:Joy of baking
1/4 cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup  granulated white sugar
1 and 1/2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Zest of 1/2 large lemon (outer yellow skin)
3/4 cups  all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup  milk
For Chocolate frosting make 1/2 of this recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and line 24 mini muffin cups with paper liners.
In the bowl  beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl whisk together the lemon zest, flour, baking powder, and salt.
With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Evenly fill the muffin cups 3/4th full with the batter and bake for about 9 minutes or just until set and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. (Always check a few minutes before the stated baking time. Do not over bake or the cupcakes will be dry.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, frost with icing.
