Chocolate vanilla cupcakes

Simple, rich vanilla cupcakes topped with a fluffy chocolate buttercream. This simple combination is a must at parties or high teas. It will blow your mind.

For the past few months my cupcake-baking-energy was running very low.

I’m not even kidding. The muffins I’m sharing today are Read more
