With Style and a Little Grace: Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes

Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes

The best vanilla cupcakes I have ever made - there I said it. I knew I wanted to make something cute and festive for the fourth so when I saw this adorable cupcake set at Target  -cupcakes were a no-brainer. I love cupcakes - they are compact and adorable plus they are insanely delicious. 

Next up was finding the perfect recipe. I went with this one and I have bookmarked it as the perfect vanilla cupcake/frosting recipe for any event. Homemade is the only way to go! I piped my own frosting and I am just so proud of how they turned out. They are so sweet, rich, and perfectly creamy. One will curb your sweet tooth for the entire day. Or maybe two in Henry's case ;) 

Happy July the 1st! I actually don't feel like June flew by which is a first for me. I know that July will probably fly because we have somehow managed to put all of our summer travel into this month plus the 4th holiday! I am looking forward to the 4th on the river, Virginia to visit my Aunt and Uncle next week, and then our cruise to the bahamas the last weekend. 

Lots of fun coming up and lots of bikini time - I need to give away all of these delicious cupcakes stat! 

Happy Hump Day!
