Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream

Last week, it was one of my best friend Jonathin’s Jonathan’s sixteenth birthday. We've had our ups and downs but in the end, I know that he’s a good kid who doesn’t mean to do half the things he doesn’t know he’s doing.

So yesterday, a group of our friends went to Pan, which is a small Greek restaurant in the heart of Greektown, to celebrate. Unfortunately, I don’t have non-blurry pictures of the food we ate because the lighting was so dim (I’m starting to really dislike dimly lit restaurants...) 

As usual, I had intended to bake something for Jonathan. After eating a delicious Vanilla Cupcake with Raspberry Buttercream cupcake from work, I knew that I wanted to bake him some cupcakes. The cupcake was pretty common, but the frosting was unbelievably light and rich and flavourful and not overly, overly sweet. It was the combination of the two that left me smiling for a full five minutes afterwards (although that might have been just a sugar high). The cupcakes were so delicious that I mentioned to one of my supervisors that I wanted to bake cupcakes for Jonathan’s birthday. To my surprise, she offered to let me make an extra dozen cupcakes to take home. Ah, the perks of the job... 


Happy Birthday Jonathan!
