Never got back to unpacking , just dumped everything in the garage and waiting for some magic where the cartons will unpack by itself ( still crossing my fingers and hoping for it ).
While I am waiting for a genie to grant my wish , I thought I would sneak in a post fit for this month .Since Valentines day is around the corner I think these cupcakes are for for such an occasion .Sweet and moist lemony cupcakes with a tangy and tart raspberry fool filling , so here goes..............

  4. These are so pretty!! I love how you did the filling in a heart shape!

    I hate the whole process of moving, and can't blame you at all for procrastinating on the unpacking.
