Vanilla Honey Cupcakes, Refined Sugar Free

Recipe for Refined Sugar Free Vanilla Honey Cupcakes

Honey powder!  WHO KNEW?!  I saw this cool stuff called honey powder last time I was at Whole Foods, and though it was stupid expensive (Whole Foods ain't cheap!), I had to buy it because I just knew I could do something really cool with it.  I pondered the honey powder until I came up with the perfect use:  Honey vanilla buttercream frosting!  The cupcake batter for these scrumptious vanilla honey cupcakes is super easy to make and comes out really soft and buttery despite the lack of refined sugar.  So that problem was solved pretty easily.  But how do you make honey buttercream frosting without sugar and not end up with a sticky, gooey mess?  I'll tell you!  Just use honey powder which you can buy for a whole lot cheaper than Whole Foods online here.  Substitute the honey powder for the powdered sugar, add a little raw honey and, viola, delicious honey vanilla buttercream frosting!  I'm taking these cupcakes to a toddler Valentine's Day party this afternoon.   Now the toddlers can have their sugar induced tantrum free cupcakes and eat them too!
