With my daughter’s super busy and stressful past year she has not been baking as much as she used to. My daughter used to bake often and she really enjoys it. Finally she was back in action in the kitchen making some amazing Pumpkin Cranberry Cupcakes and putting her Kitchen Aid Mixer to use again.

I have to say, they turned out amazing! She used caramel in the homemade frosting and covered them with crushed pecans. She also used just the right amount of cranberries, craisins to be exact, to give them a slight fruity sweetness and slight bitter bite. In fact, I am eating one right now!

Seeing my daughter getting back to something she loves makes me very happy, so today for me, Happiness Is …  Cupcakes!
