Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla & Strawberry Swirl

Happy Friday and Happy May! It's been a LONG time since I've last posted and I apologize! But there is definitely good reason for that...I recently became a new mom and I've been spending lots of time with our precious little boy Sam! I have definitely missed baking and sharing the cake projects I've been working on with you all! So today I'm so excited to be back on the blog again and share with you a delicious new recipe, Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla & Strawberry Meringue Buttercream. I love a classic vanilla cupcake but these are extra special with the addition of vanilla bean paste and some fresh seasonal strawberries in the frosting. These cupcakes will be absolutely perfect for you to spoil your mom with this coming Mother's Day!

Head on over to Half Baked for the recipe and more photos that show the steps to creating the vanilla & strawberry swirl on top and the DIY ruffled & rick rack cupcake wrappers!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to make a KY Derby Pie to celebrate the Derby tomorrow!
