Bubblegum Cupcakes

Bubblegum Cupcakes

In our circle it seems that the majority of our friends and family have summer birthdays, which means that come April birthday party season is in full swing.  Whether it’s for a party we’re hosting (for the boys) or a party that we get invited to – cupcakes are always my go-to recipe.  They are easy to make (for the most part) and travel well when it’s a party that we’re going to at someone else’s house. These Bubblegum Cupcakes are always a crowd pleaser and I make them as often as possible.  This recipe makes 14 cupcakes and takes 50 minutes start to finish, so you can whip them up in a jiffy.
