The Prettiest Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting – Dom Finaste Chocolate Chip Cupcakesen med Hallonfrosting

IMG_4461

There’s no prettier time in DC than during Cherry Blossoms. I think it’s partly because of the nature, but partly because DC is an outdoors city, and the Cherry Blossoms usually marks the first days of spring. Everyone is outside and there are flowers everywhere. In our backyard, we also have a huge magnolia tree. In combination, all the trees and their flowers create somewhat of a wonderland. When I baked that weekend, I didn’t wanna make anything else than something pink, so that set the tone. The frosting is colored with raspberries, but can of course be colored with anything. I’m throwing in some DC photos so you can see where my inspiration comes from. Happy Baking!
