Peggy Lacey Craig is asking: (1 answer)
I would like to know how the cupcake with the pink frosting and the mint leaf & raspberry on top was made. (The photo appeared in an email I received on 7/11/14.) Did the line-and-heart design (about halfway down the cupcake wrapper) appear on the paper, or was it done with pink or red gel piped on the inside of the liner? Any particular recipe for the cupcake and/or frosting? Thank you!

Here's the review they're talking about. It's a cupcake paper: There are some things that never go out of style and a good vanilla cupcake is one of them. Recipes for these abound, but a good one is not so easy to come by. This is all you'd hope for - a light and tender crumb, moist and pleasantly sweet - the perfect foundation for a sweeter frosting, or even on its own or with some fresh berries and whipped cream. I got 12 perfectly shaped and sized cupcakes, with nicely rounded tops - not too flat, not too poofy. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I baked them in pretty white and pink cupcake liners and topped them with a fresh raspberry buttercream frosting. (Just add some fresh pureed raspberries to your favorite recipe). I garnished them with a single raspberry and a sprig of fresh mint. Lovely, dainty and delicious. This is a classic vanilla cupcake recipe you can confidently depend on and be proud to serve. Thanks for sharing it Marianne!
