Happy Birthday Tucker...and vanilla bean cupcakes

One year ago today Spencer and I were blessed with our healthy and wonderful little boy, Tucker.  It's amazing how quickly time flies, it seems like this past year has been a whirlwind.  We've had so much fun and we've experienced something new and fun each and every day.  We've made so many wonderful memories throughout this past year and I will cherish each and every one of them forever.  I look forward to what the future has to bring but still I can't believe my little boy is already a year old.  Happy birthday baby, I love you so much!

We haven't has his party yet but I just had to make something sweet for him to have on his birthday and to share with all of his "classmates" at "school"!  I decided to make Vanilla Bean Cupcakes, adapted from a cake recipe seen on  Confections of a Foodie Bride.  I wanted the cupcakes to be delicious but I didn't want to do too much since a group of 1 year olds would be eating them. 

These cakes were absolutely delicious, the vanilla flavor really stood out with the use of fresh vanilla beans and I love the small flecks of vanilla that can be seen throughout the cake.  They were very moist and fluffy and packed full of flavor.  The next time you want a delicious "plain vanilla" cake I would make this, no questions asked.  You will get more than you bargained for with this recipe, and it's so much more than a normal vanilla cake!
