Baby blue cupcakes for baby Jack

I made these cupcakes for lunch with my friends and to see Caroline & Mark to meet their new baby, Jack.

While searching for a recipe I found this one for chocolate cupcakes from the Magnolia bakery. Being a big Sex and the City fan I thought it would be great to give them a go (and I also never made it to the bakery when I was in. New York earlier in the year).

They have a slightly denser texture but are quite moist, plus the icing isn’t too sweet so makes it a great combination.

Here’s the recipe if you want try them out:

and the buttercream recipe (I found that half the quantity was fine to ice 24 muffins):
