Using an electric mixer, in a medium sized mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the mashed banana.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time then the vanilla.

In a second bowl, stir the flour, baking soda and salt together.

Beat into the cream mixture in increments.

Mix in the yogurt and stir in the walnuts.

Place into the preheated oven and bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the vanilla and add the confectioners' sugar in increments until you reach the desired consistency. You may not use all the confectioners' sugar or you may need to add a little more.

Make the frosting a good piping consistency.

Place the frosting into your piping tool and frost the cupcakes.

Garnish with cake candy beads.
