Valentine's Week continues...

I needed one more card to send to one of the youngest godchildren, so I pulled out the leftover scraps from the Crate Paper Fourteen line, and this is what I came up with.


On Sunday, I decided to make my usual triple chocolate cupcakes, but I wanted something different for the frosting. Instead of just cream cheese and powdered sugar, I added marscapone to the mix. It made for a lighter and fluffier frosting. I always get asked what is the little brown specks in my icing, well, I use vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla for a deeper flavor. Plus, it is a bit cheaper than the Madagascar vanilla extract that I use in my other baked goods.


Thanks for visiting!
