It's a Girl!

No, I'm not pregnant, but I am going to be an aunt again! Our niece, Rylee Renee, is set to arrive at the end of August. I made these cupcakes for the baby shower. I made these once before for my co-worker (Baby J is set to arrive in October) and they were so adorable that I had to make them again. This time I topped them with a basic vanilla buttercream since it was too hot and humid for a swiss meringue buttercream. I also used fruit flavored Lifesavers instead of mint. I also gave this vanilla cupcake recipe a second chance, but again it turned out too dry. I'm still on the hunt for that perfect vanilla cupcake. I used my old standby for the chocolate cupcakes: Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake.
