Topping:

Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Turn the mixer down to slow speed.

Combine the milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture a little at a time. . Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. Finally, pour in the mashed banana and give it a good old stir until everything is just incorporated.

Cupcakes:

Use a piping bag to pipe a bit of the topping on top of the cupcakes. Don’t pipe out too much.
