My daughter left for Paris today and I will be on edge until I know she landed safely. So to de-stress I made some cupcakes. She bought a bunch of cake mixes the other day so I grabbed one and started from there. Hunter my 7-year-old wanted peanut butter & 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 son's favorite. I myself would prefer them with some blueberry or blackberry preserves. These are great for kids, cause what kid doesn't like PB&J?
