Vanilla Cupcakes! Classic vanilla cupcakes that are delicious, plus, can be dressed up anyway you wish. Top them with a creamy buttercream frosting or eat them plain. Either way, they are a fun and amazing treat!
My youngest son just turned 10 years old and he is a serious lover of baked goods. mmm..wonder where he gets that from? He even has his own section in the recipe index over on my other blog, Table for Seven.
For a fun ( and delicious) activity this week, we decided to make classic vanilla cupcakes and he was in charge of decorating them. OK, I did do some of the piping on a few, but, otherwise, he did them all.
