Birthday Cupcakes

IMG_7033Over the weekend, my cousin celebrated her 10th birthday party! I decided to bring some desserts and since cupcakes are a personal favorite, I thought they were perfect for the occasion.

I’ve never frosted cupcakes with an icing tip before so I was nervous about how they’d turn out, but they turned out beautifully! I used the Pilsbury yellow cake mix, homemade vanilla frosting with the Wilton 1M tip, and topped it with some star sprinkles. The cupcakes turned out a little too moist in my opinion so next time, I would add less oil than asked for or bake them for a little longer. Regardless, they were a huge hit at the party so I’m very pleased!

Every time a birthday rolls around, I always spend a good amount of time coming up with a meaningful gift or card, but sadly, I always prepare something last minute, and it’s never the gift I imagine it to be. So although this birthday “present” isn’t stellar or anything,  I did put time and effort and I’m proud of it. I made her the cupcakes, wrote a nice card, and I’m planning on getting her something very girly for her actual birthday.

Happy happy hump day! 🙂
