  1. Heat milk on stove

  4. Make cream by mixing butter and sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add vanilla to room temperature roux, then combine roux with cream and beat until like whipped cream

Despite using a blue velvet cake mix, this is not a chocolatey cupcake, so I'd recommend adding a tablespoon or so of cocoa powser.
