Vanilla cupcake sunday

Hello Everyone! the title of this post it’s pretty self explanatory … I did it again! It took a nice cool end of summer weekend, all the right ingredient and obviously time! Lately I have switched back to my tea afternoons, I am really already tune in the Fall mood and baking seemed to be the best way to spend this afternoon!

And … voilà… Vanilla Cupcakes to open the season!

Well I am no Magnolia Bakery but the results is pretty satisfying, they taste delicious and the frosting and decoration was so fun to do!! Usually I add colors to the frosting but i was feeling a little ” back to basics” so I decided to keep it simple and just add black/white chocolate flakes and some sprinkles 🙂
