Cupcakes for My Sister

My sister's birthday was last week. She'd just given birth to her second daughter the day before. As we awaited their return home from the hospital, I baked cupcakes to celebrate both birthdays. I was babysitting my two-year-old niece at the time, so I didn't want to fuss with a bunch of ingredients. Thank goodness for boxed cake mixes. Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting...mmm!

My sister likes her cupcakes simple. So I didn't pipe the frosting or cover the tops with sprinkles. Instead, I used an offset spatula to spread the frosting, and I topped the cakes with sliced strawberries. They came out quite tasty, and my sister liked them a lot. Mission completion!

Congrats to your sis and to you too for turning aunt again :P

Nice cupcakes. I can only see them from afar...

Thanks! The little baby is so sweet. ♥ I could stare at her all day long.

Sometimes looking at cupcakes from afar is better (and healthier!) than being up close. ;)
