If you're up for some weekend baking in preparation for Valentine's Day on Monday, you MUST make these!! They are super moist unlike other "from scratch" cake recipes I have tried! The recipe is simple and fairly quick to throw together. The perfect Valentine's Day treat!
Prep Ahead Plan: Make the cupcakes and frosting up to a day ahead of time. Store the frosting in the fridge and frost the cupcakes as needed or immediately before serving!
Getting pictures of the finished product is almost always a challenge! Little grabby fingers are usually waiting in the wings ready to pounce.
It's really hard to say no to that sweet little, "Pweeeeeease???"
