You can use any buttercream that you like. I prefer IMBC, so that is what I use on cupcakes as well as cakes. If you prefer the shortening and/or butter + PS buttercream, you can use that on cupcakes.

Personally, when I'm doing a cupcake assortment, I do different icings as well. For the flavors you've listed, I would do:

Chocolate -- chocolate ganache or fudge
Marble -- chocolate buttercream
Almond -- almond buttercream
Butter (is this similar to vanilla?) -- either vanilla or creme bouquet flavored buttercream

I would also make different frostings for different flavored cupcakes.

PTerrell's suggestions sound good to me. I might make some raspberry buttercream for the chocolate cupcakes.

Yeah, that would be yummy cylstrial. Orange BC would be good, too, with the chocolate.

Sugarshack's buttercream recipe is a great consistency for cupcakes. Sometimes I take a little of the buttercream and mix in a bar of cream cheese for cream cheese frosting - yummy. Her buttercream recipe uses powdered coffee creamer so you can make lots of different flavors.

I use SugarShacks and it works awesome! Great consistency for cupcakes.

I just made a chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream today. YUM! I just added Lorann oils and it was great.

I have a question about the creamer. I watched the video & heard she said add hot water to it but didn't say how much. Does anyone know the measurements for the creamer/water? Thanks!
