Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with paper liners.
In a bowl, mix eggs yolks, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and butter and mix until well combined.
With an electric mixer, whip the whites at high speed until medium stiff peaks form and fold them carefully into the egg yolk/flour batter.
Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each 3/4 full. Bake for 18 minutes and let cool completely.
Make the frosting : combine egg and sugar, stirring until sugar has dissolved.
Use a spatula to spread cupcakes with frosting and now use your artist's skills to decorate!
