Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.
In a bowl of a stand mixer fixed with the paddle attachment, combine sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix together.
Add in canola oil, buttermilk and vanilla. Mix on medium speed just until it starts to come together. Mix in eggs one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Slowly pour in boiling water. Mix for 2 more minutes. Batter will be thin.
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 way full. Bake in preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove cupcakes from oven and allow to cool completely .
Make frosting by creaming together butter and powdered sugar in a stand mixer. Beat in vanilla extract. Beat in two tablespoons milk and continue beating until a thick spreadable mixture forms. If frosting seems too thick add remaining tablespoon milk.
Spoon frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar. Serve.
