We are so excited to have our friend, Marian from Sweetopia back today to share these adorable cupcakes for Cupcake Monday, along with a fantastic tutorial video on How to Frost Cupcakes

Happy spring to you! There’s something so joyful about May… new beginnings, bright colors, warmer temperatures, which influences my baking recipe choices and sweet-decorating style. I knew instantly when I saw these carnival cupcake baking cups in Kim’s shop, that they were exactly what I needed to celebrate this happy season.

These moist, fluffy, golden-delicious cupcakes are easy to make, and the swirl of frosting easy to create. I’ve created a video which you can find at the end of this post, to show you how.

Topping the sweet, vanilla frosting are some funfetti sprinkles, and couldn’t resist pairing the colorful cupcake liners with Martha Stewart’s favour boxes from The TomKat Studio’s shop.

We’re renovating our home right now, and my pretty glasses are snugly packed away into a storage container, so these charming chevron straws that Kim sent will have to wait until summer to be used.

Hope you’re enjoying the season where you are, and have fun baking!
