Since today is one of my best friends engagement parties, I decided I wanted to try to make this cherry blossom cupcake - not only because I like it but to celebrate spring :) I made a vanilla cupcake with a hint of vanilla bean added in. Then I folded in some chopped up Morello cherries. Then topped it with a white chocolate buttercream. Overall happy with the way it turned out, but I wanna add more cherries next time.

Cherry Blossoms and Engagement Cupcakes
Every year around the end of March and beginning of April the cherry blossoms bloom in Washington D.C. And every April, Georgetown Cupcake features their cherry blossom cupcake. It's described as a "Madagascar bourbon vanilla cupcake baked with cherries topped with a cherry-infused vanilla cream cheese frosting". This was actually the first Georgetown Cupcake I ever had ...and I was hooked!And here are the engagement cupcakes for the party tonight. I made four flavors: cherry blossom, lemon, chocolate orange, and peanut butter cup. I tried to think of flavors kids and adults would like.
