I am very passionate about cooking & baking is a perk because I believe every meal deserves an awesome dessert. I created these cupcakes a few days ago along with my two teenagers while my husband was in Memphis. We wanted him to have something extra to smile about when he returned home! This recipe is simple and very tasty! Please enjoy
