My daughter left for Paris today and I will be on edge until I know she landed safely. So to destress I made some cupckes. She bought a bunch of cake mixes the other day so i grabbed one and started from there. Hunter my seven year old wanted peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, (i made him peanut butter and jelly brownies once and he loved them) so this is what we came up with :) You can use any kind of preserves or jam, i used grape jam since it is my sons favorite. I myself would prefer them with some blueberry or blackberry preserves. These are great for kids, cause what kid doesnt like PBJ
