Yesterday was my friend Janel’s 24th birthday. Janel and I met during our freshman year in college and since I’ve moved to Charlotte we’ve gotten even closer. We celebrated with dinner at Maggiano’s at SouthPark Mall. The food and the service were great but the dinner guests were the highlight of my night. I really enjoyed dinner with old friends and new ones.

Janel loves vanilla cupcakes, so for her birthday I made 24 mini vanilla cupcakes for her. I tinted the frosting with her favorite colors. I was extremely pleased with the shades of purple, green and blue that I achieved using the Wilton Gel Icing Colors. Instead of using traditional liners, I used Wilton Nut & Party Cups. It took me a while to figure out how to get the cupcake out of the cup (you have to tug at the sides of cup and it expands) but I loved the finished product.
These cupcakes were so moist!
Oh! I love the boxes and inserts from BRP Box Shop.
