Claire’s Scrumptious Cupcake Recipe

Is there anything lovelier than making homemade cupcakes with your daughter! Claire Graham Photography shares her delicious cupcake recipes for these beautiful little treats, along with her photographs of a baking session with her little girl! We think this is precious inspiration for the weekend and would definitely love to eat one (or two) of these, especially the vanilla buttercream topped with a sprinkling of crushed Pistachios. We’re dreaming of Saturday morning fresh baking smells and cake decorating cuteness!
