* Note: Do not use self-rising flour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the dry ingredients into a medium-size mixing bowl, and set the bowl aside. Break the eggs into a small bowl, and set aside. In an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and the sugar until they are light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. With the mixer running, carefully pour in the eggs and the vanilla and almond extracts. Mix in the flour mixture and the buttermilk by alternating between 1 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of buttermilk; be sure to start and end with the flour mixture. Line a cupcake tin with paper liners. Fill each cup with batter using an ice-cream scoop with a 1/4-cup capacity; the batter should nearly reach the top of the cups. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool the cupcakes for 45 minutes on a baking rack. Generously ice them with White Frosting. Top with a Snowflake made from Royal Icing. WHITE FROSTING: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the confectioners? sugar and butter until smooth. Add the salt, lemon extract, and milk; beat until smooth. If the icing is too thin, add more confectioners? sugar; if too thick, add more milk. Makes 2 dozen cupcakes.
