These cupcakes are light and airy. A perfect combo of vanilla and chocolate!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The Nutella frosting is amazing chocolate decadence in these cupcakes. If you love hazelnut, you'll love these. The vanilla cupcake is tender with a subtle flavor. It allows the Nutella frosting to shine. When mixed, the frosting is heavy but has an airy texture. Quite tasty.
