This is so easy to flavor any way you like. Try adding lemon, peppermint, or orange extract in place of half (or all!) of the vanilla to better match your cake flavor. This easily makes enough to frost 2 1/2 dozen cupcakes. My last batch was lemon, and I added a couple drops of yellow food coloring, along with the lemon extract.
