Cupcakes to 'cake' off the season.


My boyfriend's birthday was on September 2nd and for his birthday he asked me to make him cupcakes in his favorite college football team, Louisiana State University's colors. Take a look at how cute they came out!!

I made a delicious Purple Vanilla Buttercream and swirled it atop extra moist vanilla cupcakes and finished with some yellow nonpariels.

I live in Baton Rouge and need to make LSU cupcakes for this Saturday. I subscribe to the Bakerella email, too. I'm inspired by her blog. Your cake looks very moist yet holds up all that icing. Would you share your recipe for the cake?
