Now that Bouchard Chocolate got me in the Mother's Day mood and I'm feeling sentimental, I decided to bake these Lemon Raspberry Springtime Cupcakes. Another reason, I love Mother's Day is because it marks the month I launched What's Baking, Babycakes? with my daughter. We used these beautiful Wilton pink petal cupcake wrappers on our first Mother's Day post, so I wanted to use them again for our one year anniversary. I used the Wilton #96 drop flower decorating tip, which was my favorite to use in my cake decorating classes I took years ago. Although I've learned so much about baking since my classes, I still go "back to basics" from time to time. Since I have these pretty purple springtime flowers budding in my garden, I thought I would make some beautiful purple blooms on my cupcakes. As you can see, there's so much to be thankful for in May! I hope all you mothers have a wonderful Mother's day, too. What are you most thankful for this Mother's Day?
