Believe it or not, it’s still spring for two more days. This time of year always brings lots of birthdays, so I’ve been mailing lots of packages and baking lots of cupcakes. It’s also the time when farmer’s markets are springing up across the city and there are fresh berries to be had. I didn’t have any food coloring to pretty up my usual frosting recipe, so I mashed up some raspberries to give it a little color instead. I added whole blackberries and raspberries to top each cupcake, plus a cute little kitten toothpick topper. As easy as these are to whip up, you now have no excuse for forgetting anyone’s birthday.
