Normally, I do not enjoy the start of a new week. It means a lot of catching up at work, getting up early, and of course the dreaded Monday. This week is much different because it is the start of my Birthday Week!!
My 27th birthday is on Saturday and I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that I am about to be 27 years old. When I was younger, I figured I’d be married with a couple children by now. Obviously, times have changed, and I’m substituting a husband and children with a full-time job and wild Friday nights with friends. Not that I’m upset about this.
I decided to start off my week-long celebrations with Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes. It had been so long since I had baked cupcakes, especially scratch-made. And the combination of a rainy Sunday and my birthday seemed like a perfect time to revisit with my cupcake tin and mixer.
I found this recipe while browsing through blogs one slow day at work. I’m so glad I did because these sure did brighten my rainy day. Homemade cupcakes and homemade buttercream frosting.
Two of my favorite things in this world.
The only problem I had with this baking adventure was waiting for the cakes to cool so I could frost them. I was too excited and the little cakes had to chill out in the ‘fridge for a bit. Oops:)
I’m most definitely looking forward to a fun, sugar-laden week. Yum!
