021. Cupcakes <3

Everyone who knows me knows I love to bake.  When my guy asked me to bake him cupcakes for his companies Christmas party, I got all excited.  His party was at 10am and he asked me at 6am.  I wish he gave me more notice so I wasn’t baking first thing in the morning, but I got it done and they were a big hit!  Hes still having coworkers ask when I will be bringing in more cupcakes.  Im really thinking about opening a bakery one day.  There are no bakeries in my area minus the grocery stores with there frozen cakes.  Here is the recipe:
