Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Frosting

Food memories are some of the strongest. When I smell onions being caramelized with peppers in olive oil I’m immediately transported to when my parents would make fajitas. Or when I smell tomato sauce cooking on the stove it usually meant lasagna was on it’s way. But those are both memories conjured up mostly from smell. These cupcakes, while only just a small fraction of the food I’ve been made by my grandmother and probably only made a couple of times by her, are something that everytime I go to visit her, I think of these cupcakes.

White Russian Cupcakes

Please ignore my naked cupcakes.

They may not have some fancy frilly cupcake liners on, but they are still beautiful in their own way. They’re unqiue!

And you know what? They feel comfortable in their own skin, so who cares what the world thinks! They don’t need the worlds approval!
