Birthday Recap - Part 2 (Cupcakes)

When birthdays roll around in the Coulson household my mom will ask each of us the same crucial question... "what do you want for your birthday dinner?" Each of our answers gives a little insight into who each of us are as individuals and also shows has vastly different siblings can be. My brother is a surf and turf kinna guy, my sister traditionally opts for an Italian based meal and I always go with Momma's comfort food favs. Last year it was meatloaf - this year, fried chicken and mac salad. As always, it was over the moon delicious and I left a little more than stuffed.

I'm lucky to say that this year's dinner menu also had a key new addition. Over the past year and a half my sister Katie has become a skilled cupcake baker and decorator (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and one cake here). For my Birthday (cup)Cake, she made me the most moist red velvet cupcakes I've ever had. Topped with cream cheese frosting and berries, I couldn't help but yell out "oh my, this are GORGEOUS" and immediately grab my camera. 

Bravo to my sister and her culinary cupcake baking skills.
