With Corbin’s birthday this happening this last week it had me in the mood to do some cupcake baking before the new little one arrived and the party. I knew I wouldn’t be up for actually putting together a cake this year (if I was even home from the hospital yet) so I did plenty of practicing and experimenting before hand. These cupcakes for kids were a hit! They are colorful, a tiny bit of sour to get your taste buds going and a very kid friendly design.
Like I said, the kids loved these and so did the adults. I think it can get rather boring eating the same thing over and over again at parties, which is why I was so happy to make these. Not to mention, these make a new mama happy! I need lots of yummy calories to help make this milk, so I was happy to try one or two of these.
The recipe itself is also fairly simple and it’s not something you will be slaving over the stove for. My personal favorite of this recipe is how light and fluffy the icing is. I’m not a huge fan of heavy icing and this hits the spot. My boys could eat icing all day long, no matter what kind it is, so it was nice to have something sweet that everyone loved!
