“I made these cupcakes for my sister-in-law's Baby Shower. She wasn't finding out what the sex of her baby was until the birth so I used that for the frosting idea (see the picture). I am a strict vegetarian who rarely gets to enjoy special occassion treats so these are vegan so I get to join in the fun :)”
