Ava Grace's Closet: Well, Hello There Cupcake

Well, Hello There Cupcake

I've never really met a cupcake that I didn't like.
I like them most the day after and preferably first thing in the morning.
Somehow, I feel least guilty then.

Witness the cupcake love that was shared this past weekend.
And then, just when we thought there could be no greater sweetness...
my sister in law surprised us with these lovelies.
By far, the very best red velvet cupcakes I have ever tried. My children, aka the cupcake connoisseurs wholeheartedly agreed.
I may or may not have found the last cupcake's wrap in Julian's room this morning.
A boy after my own heart.

She used this recipe and emphasized that the whole baking soda fizz part {such a baker I am} was by far the most important. So if you plan to make them, and I highly recommend you do, like today, pay close attention there.
And then, send some over. 

Happy cupcakeTuesday!

  11. The baking soda AND the vinegar are the best parts. They make the recipe! Just made these for my hubby's b-day. Yours look much better though!

  14. I recently read that having dessert in the morning was not a bad idea and could even lead to better health as you feel less deprived, yada yada... didn't need to read any further, they had me at having cupcakes in the morning :) So, there you go, more justification for ya!

  15. Dearest Susan,

    A two year old must keep you young at heart and looking like a model. You're blessed with a great and above all, healthy family.
    Enjoy it while you can.
    Love to you,
