Funfetti Birthday Cupcakes


My good friend Jenn turned the big 30 on Saturday and I helped throw her a combined birthday bash with her super cool friend Stephanie (who's now my friend too). That included, of course, cupcakes of their choice. They choose 4 flavors and this post is about flavor #1: Funfetti. Who said 30 year olds don't like funfetti!


When I made these back in March to celebrate my case settling, Jenn LOVED these, so she wanted them again. You can find the recipe on my blog here. I got the idea and recipe for these from the great Clara of I Heart Cuppycakes. These did me right once and did me right again. Thanks Clara.


As you can see from these photos, I am greatly enjoying my new Nikon AF 50mm 1.8D lense. After getting my new Nikon D40, I took a photography class at a camera store in the city that was recommended by a photographer friend. The class was awesome, and afterwards I was sold on some new camera gear, including this lense and Lightroom by Adobe (which I have ordered but not recieved yet). The professor did say we chose what could be the most expensive hobby!


In conclusion, Clara's funfetti cupcakes rock and are suitable for the children or young at heart in your lives (or anyone really!). Make them!
