Vanilla Bean Cupcakes


Oh, vanilla beans. These expensive and delicate beans are the base to an out of this world dessert. They make a simple vanilla recipe stand out from the rest. From the beans dancing in the dessert, to dancing on your tongue there is just something special about baking with vanilla beans.


First, let’s meet my sister-in-law Katie. She came all the way from Minnesota to spend her spring break with us. She is one of the most amazing people that I know and I am very blessed to have gained her as a sister. We had a blast in the kitchen making these cupcakes together.


The frosting by Cupcake Project itself tasted like vanilla soft serve ice cream. Paired with Sally’s Baking Addiction’s recipe for vanilla bean cupcake and a strawberry… Well let’s just say that you need to make these yourself to fully understand what I mean when I say that these were truly suburb cupcakes.


To achieve a more fluffy and whiter cupcake I substituted the butter for shortening.

Right now I have a couple of t-shirts, a sign, and business cards waiting in my shopping cart on Vistaprint. I’m also working on an online portfolio. So far things are going smoothly for Dessert For Sharing to launch at Farmer Market’s this summer! I’m really stoked to see where God takes this, to be able to help people recover from being forced into human trafficking and to bake more things.

Next week I have some Snicker Doodles to share with you all. Until then God Bless you and have a great week.

Mrs.Hess, out.
