On cupcakes and pinwheels

On cupcakes:

Today is my birthday, so (with a little help from my boy) I made myself some cupcakes!!!

Yum!!! We used the Vanilla Cupcake Recipe from the Magnolia bakery. Overall, I was very happy with the resulting cupcake. It was maybe a little on the dry side, but I loved the dense texture and the sweetness level and the vanilla flavor (though we had a little vanilla incident in the making of these cupcakes... so I don't know exactly how much ended up in there-- but I know it was a at least a little over the top!). I even got a little fancy and whipped out the piping bags for some decorative frosting. So pretty!

On pinwheels:

How can I resist?
