Vanilla Cupcakes with Glace Frosting

To celebrate the end of our exams, we had a mini baking session today!
so glad that the boyfriend’s sister, fiona kinda shares my interest.. my sis and cm are only interested in the eating bit. -.-||

it’s fun to have company during the baking process and she had a blast decorating the cupcakes with the sprinkles and cherries!

it’s my first attempt at decorating cupcakes and i think it went quite well..

we both think that the cupcakes taste great (i think the icing is a lil too sweet IMO), cm adores the icing and could polish off the entire bowl if i didn’t stop him in time :p
