Hi sweet teeth!

I hope you all had a nice weekend!  Mine was very busy and a lot of fun.  It was my good friend Emily‘s wedding shower and bachelorette party weekend.  The weekend would not have been complete without great friends, lovely gifts and a drag show!  After a good night of sleep last night I have fully recuperated!

I volunteered to bring a dessert (you are so surprised aren’t you?) to the event on Friday evening and again, with it being another steamy weekend, I wanted something light that would not weigh us down in our party shoes.  I decided on my favorite strawberry cupcakes with a couple of new twists.

These light vanilla cupcakes are filled with a strawberry and marscapone cheese combination so that when you bite into them you are pleasantly met with a burst of creamy strawberry goodness.  A vanilla simple syrup glaze tops them all off and they are almost as pretty as our beautiful bachelorette!

    Dear Mercedes, Do you use Stevia in any recipes. I’m diabetic and I have a sweet tooth. (brush and floss it every day) TC

      Hi TC! No I have actually meant to try Stevia though and thanks to your suggestion, it will be on my “To Bake With” list! I have tried Splenda and did not care for the very artificial flavor and unpleasant aftertaste, but I will give Stevia a try! Have you tried baking with it? Glad to hear you “brush and floss your sweet tooth everyday” (very cute :)) and I will make it a point to find you with some Stevia treats when I make them! Thanks for reading!
