2 Cakes; 1 Buttercream – Part 1: Moist Chocolate cupcakes with Tart Raspberry Buttercream

I have a confession to make. I love my best friend’s Fresh Tart Raspberry Buttercream recipe. It tastes absolutely amazing. I have used it to fill French Macarons and I’ve had it on top of sweet vanilla cakes.

But those are both light and simple flavors. I wanted to taste them with something equally complex. I wanted to taste something rich to complement the tart.

I was a little worried that this would be a little bit of a clash, but it turns out, the richness of the moist chocolately cake paired perfectly with the tart raspberry.

Vanilla Ombre Rose Birthday Cake with White Chocolate Buttercream

My lovely friend, Rina, of the amazing fashion blog, And She Dressed, was throwing a wonderful birthday tea party! When she asked if I could bake her a cake and the dessert catering for her party, I had my bags packed and a suitcase full of kitchen gadgets ready to go! Off to the magical land of Vancouver! I called my best friend, rented her kitchen for a couple of days and the rest was history.

Since I know their kids are a huge fan of Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches, I have made Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes!
