I’m sure you’re a little bit surprised to see me posting on a Thursday, but today is a very special day for my blog because today, Maggie’s Musings turns 2 years old! I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone by since I first started this blog, but I’ve loved every second of it.
So what are you waiting for? Read the rest of the post to begin the celebration!
I like baking. Have I talked about that before? I can’t cook an actual proper meal to save my life, but I do love baking, especially when it comes to cupcakes. Although I don’t do it as often as I used to, just because of school and life stuff, I still enjoy getting out the mixer every once in a while.
I’ve wanted to share some cupcakes on my blog for some time now, and now that I’m finally home from school, I had access to a proper kitchen. And with summer being just around the corner, I thought it’d be appropriate to share some raspberry lemonade cupcakes! That wasn’t entirely my decision – I used a Twitter poll to see what people were most interested in – but these were definitely the perfect cupcakes for the season, and they were a lot of fun to make!
The cupcakes and frosting were all made from scratch, although I didn’t create the recipe myself. I adapted the cake recipe from an cupcake recipe book (if you love baking, this is definitely worth checking out), and the recipe for the frosting comes from Wilton, the baking company. I’ll be sharing everything below, but I wanted to give credit where credit is due.
Are you ready to get baking? Grab your apron and mixing bowls and let’s get started!
