Welcome Baby Girl Cupcakes


Please excuse the blurry photo. I took this photo moments after I finished assembling these cupcakes at our friends’ house and all I wanted to do was get a close look at their sweet newborn.

You may remember my Welcome Baby Boy Cupcakes, well those were for her big brother.

These cupcakes are a simple vanilla cake base, topped with Martha Stewart’s seven-minute frosting, and adorable rattles I had picked up at Michael’s ages ago for an occasion just like this one.

I chose to make the seven-minute frosting because it had held its shape so well when I used it to make lemon meringue cupcakes and I was hoping it would travel well – it did.

There is nothing I hate more than toiling over cupcakes only to have my hard work ruined when the vehicle I am travelling in makes a sharp right.

Be warned, however, this frosting is sweet, and it may not be to everyone’s liking. I prefer it to butter cream, though, and you may as well. Make it once and it will likely become a fast favourite because it is hard to mess up if you follow the instructions.
