Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Hey guys! So there are only a few short days until Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t already, go read Monday’s post to help you get decorating! Now onto today’s post. 

Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Yesterday, I made these yummy vanilla-raspberry cupcakes! These cupcakes are made of two parts. A delicious vanilla cake, topped with smooth rich raspberry buttercream frosting! Then you can add sprinkles if you want and of course, eat them!

I frosted these using the large sized open star tip in this AMAZING set I got on amazon, in a Wilton frosting bag. Before getting these frosting tips I just thought I was horrible at frosting cupcakes, until I realized that I was using the small Wilton brand tips that are really made for making designs, not frosting a cupcake. So I bought these tips and instantly fell in love with them! They are so great! You can frost both mini and normal sized cupcakes! Buy this set here.

All you do is just pop them into the frosting bag, add the frosting, and trim the tip of the bag off! Then just frost the cupcakes! Down below, you can see all of the items I used in this recipe and where to buy them. Now onto the recipe!

Blueberry lemonade cupcakes!

Hey guys! I am loving summer, what about you? I’m excited to be posting these Blueberry Lemonade cupcakes! That just sounds so summery, doesn’t it? I just love the way these cupcakes turned out! So, the cake part of these cupcakes is a yellow cake with blueberries folded into the batter, then we top it with delicious lemonade frosting!Delicious yellow cake with folded in blueberries, topped with sweet lemonade frosting!

So, I was kind of scared to do this recipe because I had to make up the recipe. The batter was pretty easy to do, I just made a yellow cake and gently folded in a cup of blueberries at the end. to make the frosting lemonade, I added two tablespoons of lemon juice to it.Delicious yellow cake with folded in blueberries, topped with sweet lemonade frosting!

I love this recipe, the juicy deliciousness of the blueberry cake, balanced with the sweet and tart taste of the lemonade frosting! It is so good!
