The hubby turns 33 and cupcakes!

Last month, my husband had a birthday. . . it was a great excuse to whip up some cupcakes.  I made a cake, too. . . but that was a kitchen nightmare (seriously! Major kitchen disaster!).  But, the cupcakes came out so yummy.  My inspiration was these cupcakes that we often get from our local cupcake-ry.  Last year, Jon got all Cake Boss on me and made me make this, so I knew that I wanted to do something special for him and Boston Cream Pies are one of his favorite desserts. 

These were really good.  Plus, I love the ganache and whipping cream frosting combo.  It's my favorite sweet combo ever!
I love this guy!

"It's a Sweater!!!" He joined the rest of the 33rs in the family and got his really ugly sweater.

Now, I hope that this post makes sense. . . because I am incredibly sleep deprived due to the joys of motherhood. . .

Boston Cream Cupcakes
