TODAY: Vanilla Cupcake Day
TOMORROW: Veterans Day
According to the celebrations posted for the Second Week of November, you should be enjoying Vanilla Cupcake Day! Vanilla cupcakes are oh-so sweet and so-o-o-o-o-o buttery. If you have not already indulged, it is time to go for it! After all, you do not have to wait for dessert to enjoy a cupcake or cupcakes plural, especially if minis. They make terrific snacks and most often vanilla or chocolate is at the top of the list. What makes Vanilla Cupcake Day even more special is the addition of whatever icing suits your fancy. You can even go a step further and add slices of fresh fruit, crushed candies or sprinkles. The possibilities are endless!
Most importantly is the fact vanilla cupcakes are relatively easy to make. So, with that thought in mind, follow the instructional video or click the image below for recipe and directions.
