Butterfly Cupcakes

I cannot believe that my blog is 2 years old today, I am so proud of me for actually sticking it out! Although, this year I have not been the best for posting my recipes, I am still ALWAYS baking, so on this special day I had to share something special. This recipe I have been making since a little girl, I probably just did the decorating then but still, I made them! My recipe for Butterfly Cupcakes is really easy and can be made with the younger ones assistance as they will love helping, especially when you mention butterflies. Aside from being simple, they always look great, so this is a recipe you must try;
