  1. I have new-found appreciation for a simple vanilla cupcake after making some recently. I love your raspberry jam filling and the ripple frosting really makes them really special!

  2. I am crazy about jam filled treats (think sugar coated jam donuts), so these little morsels are right up my alley! Gorgeous, these are going on my must-try list.

    Thanks for sharing Rosie.
