  5. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cupcake comes out clean. Remove from oven once done and allow to cool completely before frosting..
  6. For the cream cheese frosting- In a stand mixer (or a regular hand held mixer will do fine) beat the cream cheese and butter until well combined and smooth..
