 ½ cup vegetable oil
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 1 tbsp baking powder

 1 lb butter, salted, room temperature
 5 egg whites
 1 cup sugar
 ½ vanilla bean pod, split, seeds removed

CBD Strawberry Filling
1

Place the fresh or frozen strawberries into a saucepan over medium heat.

2

In a small bowl, mix the sugar & cornstarch together.

3

Bring the strawberries to a slow boil, cook until the strawberries break down a bit.

4

Add the sugar & cornstarch mixture & stir. Bring to a boil again & the mixture will quickly thicken. Cook for 2 minutes.

5

Remove the saucepan from the heat & stir in the CBD elixir. Pour the filling into a shallow dish & chill.

Vanilla Cupcake Batter
6

Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C, line a cupcake pan with liners.

7

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

8

In a liquid measure, whisk together the wet ingredients.

9

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients & whisk until the mixture is fairly smooth, some small lumps are okay.

10

Use a 2 ounce muffin scoop to equally portion each cupcake into the liners.

11

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown or until a toothpick inserted, comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for a bit & remove to cool to room temperature.

Vanilla Bean Buttercream
12

Use a bowl fitted for a double boiler or place a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Whisk together the egg whites & sugar.

13

Place the egg white mixture over the boiling water & stir often to prevent sweet scrambled egg whites.

14

Once the mixture reaches 140°F/60°C, place into a bowl fitted for a stand mixer or use a hand mixer. Use a whisk attachment & beat on high until a meringue forms.

15

Add the butter in chunks. The meringue will appear to collapse & split but it will come together as long as the butter isn't too cold. If the buttercream is too cold, place the bowl in another bowl with warm water or use a torch on the outside of the metal bowl while it's mixing.

*DO NOT leave the torch in one spot, move the torch over the surface of the bowl to melt the butter a bit. Leaving the flame in one spot will torch that spot on the bowl*

16

Once the buttercream comes together, add the vanilla & beat until it becomes light & fluffy.
