I was one on a list of bloggers that was invited to participate in a virtual baby shower for Jan Scott of the popular blog, Family Bites. I haven’t met Jan personally, but I did hear her speak at the 2013 Food Bloggers of Canada Conference and was impressed by her enthusiasm and warm personality.
We were asked to select a food that Jan would enjoy – virtually. Vanilla mini-cupcakes came to mind as they are one of my favourite treats. In just two bites you’re done or maybe not as one is never enough. I was going to use my go-to vanilla cupcake and fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting recipes that are fail proof. I planned to make the vanilla mini-cupcakes last weekend but as luck would have it, I was struck with the flu last Friday and was bedridden for most of the weekend. My goddaughter Tanya, who is a wonderful baker, came to my rescue and made them.
These are the links for the Vanilla Mini-Cupcakes and Fluffy Vanilla Frosting.
