Birthdays rock! However, when they fall close to the holiday it’s kind of hard. Mine is kind of close to American Thanksgiving but my friend had a birthday on Saturday right smack in the middle of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving leftovers.
This recipe from Oh LadyCakes has traditional spelled out all over it. I made cupcakes because I don’t have 6″ pans and I wanted a thicker and higher cake. You know, it’s more impressive. So instead I went the cupcake route.
The recipe is super easy, it got me exactly 12 cupcakes. I did half the frosting though because I wouldn’t have needed that much to frost only the tops. Sprinkles make everything seem cheery so I couldn’t say no!
