I can’t believe how much blogging has changed my life.
I know that may sound a little over the top, but honestly it has.
I could never have imagined the opportunities for friendships, creativity and inspiration!
I have never felt more inspired in my life. Truly.
A year ago, I really didn’t know anything about bloggyland, let alone the vastness of it!
I was very intimidated (and still am) by all the amazing creativity out there,
but I put on my blinders and tackled this blog the way I wanted.
So A Pretty Life in the Suburbs was born, and has grown and changed so much, and I hope it continues to do so!
Thank you all for reading my blog and keeping me inspired!
And here is where I should thank my mom specifically, because she’s really the reason I started all of this in the first place! So Mom, thank you so much for the inspiration!
So let’s eat cake.
For this bloggy birthday, I made Chocolate Cupcakes filled and topped with Peanut Butter Cream Frosting.
The cupcake is a little like a cross between a regular chocolate cupcake and a brownie.
It’s good, BUT if you have a tried and true chocolate cupcake recipe, go with that! (I’m still on a quest for the perfect chocolate cupcake…)
But this frosting is to die for! It’s absolutely going to be a staple in my cake baking.
I could eat it by the spoonful. I may or may not have already. Just sayin’.
Using a little knife, core out a little circle of cake from the middle of the cupcake. Make it as big or little as you would like. If you love a lot of peanut butter yumminess, like we do, make the hole as above (about inch deep and wide).
Fill in all of the holes with the frosting first. Then use the remaining frosting to icing the cupcakes.
Add chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on top of the icing.
Eat. Love. And trust me, you will need a glass of milk. A big one.
