My niece’s 5th Birthday is approaching and my brother asked me to bake some cupcakes for her school’s birthday celebration. Of course, how can I pass on any opportunity to bake some cupcakes. Plus, they are for my lovely niece. Of course, I happily said yes.
Looking at the cupcakes from another angle…ah….I wanted to dive right in! hahaha….I made vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate cupcakes and topped them off with swirls of vanilla bean buttercream and fresh strawberry buttercream. Then, sprinkled some of them with a little sugar pearls and heart shaped sprinkles. I guess most kids love sprinkles, including me. :P These buttercreams are to die for. They are creamy, smooth and fluffy with the right amount of sweetness. I love the little tangy flavor from the fresh strawberry buttercream. And the one with vanilla bean buttercream, it’s fragrant and sweet. The vanilla bean makes such a difference on the taste.
Here’s a special one for the little princess! I hope she’ll like it.
I ended up with 2 full boxes and some, for my 2 little cupcake monsters at home. I’m waving these cupcakes goodbye….before I seal off the boxes.
One last peek….
Happy Birthday, Princess Belle! Wish you good health, joy and happiness for the coming year and more. :)
