So yesterday we mixed up the batter...
...using my favorite one bowl chocolate cupcake recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart.
And today we whipped up buttercream frosting with some pureed raspberries mixed in because 1. it makes the icing pink and 2. raspberries are so yummy! The icing is a bit too sweet for my taste, but the girls are loving it--they're licking all the cupcakes clean!
Now that the food is taken care of, it's time to finish the decorating. We have some hearts to hang up and then we should be all set to celebrate the patron saint of love and happy marriages--two things I am very thanksful for!
