A few days ago I got a request from a friend for cupcakes for her daughter’s 4th birthday party. I won’t lie, I’ve had some bad experiences with cupcakes (read here) but I really wanted to help out. So this morning I got up bright and early and made two dozen of the Perfect Party Cupcakes and a batch of Buttercream Dream Frosting I blogged about awhile back. If you need a tried and true vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream recipe, try these two, they won’t ever let you down. Promise.
These particular cupcakes are topped with purple sanding sugar and handmade, pink white chocolate daisies, thanks to my husband Jeremy. He is the artistic one of the two of us (and definitely the more patient one). My only worry was the car ride over…summertime heat makes me nervous when transporting baked goods and chocolate. But they made it safely and were a hit!
Happy birthday Audrey!
