Had one of those days where nothing helps but a little sweet. This is one of my favorite recipes. Magnolia vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. My husband's old office used to reside across the street from Magnolia Bakery, one of the most famous for their cupcakes in NYC.
They have been featured on Martha Stewart many times. Well I had bought the Magnolia Bakery book a few years back at Anthropologie. I have been making these around Easter time and for birthdays. They are delightful.
And look spectacular too! Just ate one. Yummy.
Here is the recipe for you to enjoy too.
