Yellow cupcakes are decorated with a classic buttercream frosting, colored pink. These Baby Girl Cupcakes are the perfect thing to serve at a baby shower or birthday party!
So the news I mentioned the other day….I’m pregnant! TheBetterHalf and I are expecting a sweet baby girl, due on March 28. We are absolutely thrilled, and can’t wait to start this next chapter of our lives. I have been dying to share the news with all of you, and wanted to celebrate with the girliest treat I could think of – Baby Girl Cupcakes – aka yellow cupcakes with pink buttercream frosting.
You might have noticed that I have been kind of absent from the blog the past few months, and now I can finally explain! The first trimester was no joke. I felt so sick pretty much all the time – actually eating something was hard enough, let alone cooking or baking it myself! I’ve never been more thankful for food delivery. NYC is pretty much a pregnant lady’s dream city – you can get absolutely anything you want delivered to you at any time of day. Plus I was just exhausted all the time. It took everything I had to get out of bed in the morning and drag myself to work, so the blog was the first thing that got pushed to the backburner (followed by seeing friends, exercising, cleaning the house…pretty much all I did for 6 weeks was work and sleep!)
And…this is shocking…I lost my sweet tooth!!! That might have been the most alarming side effect of all! Luckily now that I’m in my second trimester, my sweet tooth is back and so is some of my energy. I probably won’t be posting 2-3 times a week like I used to, but I am hoping to get back to a post or two a week. And what a perfect time of year to come back to blogging, with the holidays just around the corner. I love making fall food and baking holiday treats!
This is such a classic cupcake recipe – they are so simple to make and taste delicious. You can frost them with any kind of icing you like, but I went for a simple and classic buttercream frosting, colored pink in honor of my baby girl! These would be the perfect treat to serve at a baby shower or a little girl’s birthday party!
I used a Wilton Star Tip No. 21 to decorate these cupcakes with a simple swirl. I also played around with another design here:
I liked the swirl better, but included a picture of the other way because I think it is kind of fun too!
To all of my pregnant and mommy blog friends and readers – any tips for me?! Can’t wait to talk to all of you about this incredible journey.
