This frosting definitely makes the top of my list, it’s incredible! I made these cupcakes for my nephew’s 3rd birthday and they were very well received! Of course, I had to make them Ninja Turtle-rrific! This Vanilla Cupcake is so incredibly moist and rich and, as I mentioned, the Cake Batter Frosting is TO DIE FOR!

White Velvet Cake with Fresh Strawberry Buttercream

I made this cake for a friend’s daughter’s first birthday. It was so adorable and delicious, I just had to share! This makes a great smash cake or mini cake (6”). It makes enough for 3 tall layers, I only used two in my cake to avoid sending a 1 year old into a sugar coma! 🙂 You could also probably make a bigger two layer cake with the same recipe. It’s a moist, smooth white cake with a light, tasty frosting with just enough strawberry to make it taste wonderful! Let me know what you think of this recipe!

Cookie Dough Obsession Cupcakes

Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Let’s face it, we all love cookie dough! I can’t ever think of a time I’ve had cookie dough ice cream and thought, man there is WAY too much cookie dough in this ice cream. No, there is never too much cookie dough in anything ;). This cupcake is for those who love cookie dough as much as I do! It’s a cookie dough cupcake with a soft eggless cookie dough center and cookie dough frosting on top – and it is as delicious as it sounds! I served these at a party and they were a huge hit! I’m also obsessed with my new Sparkly Gold Sequins Tablecloth I used for the backdrop of this picture… it’s as amazing as the cupcakes! This is a great, super simple recipe that turns out better than any cupcakes you’d get at a bakery! Enjoy!
