Pound cake birthday cupcakes. Yum, yum.

A couple weeks ago we celebrated the baby's first birthday. I made these delicious pound cake cupcakes. They were super simple. And obviously little boy loved them.

Warning: No, these aren't healthy. Don't feed them to your toddler daily.

What you'll need: (Yields 24 cupcakes)


3 cups flour

3 cups sugar

6 Eggs

3 Sticks Butter

1 tsp vanilla extract


1 8-ounce package cream cheese

1 stick butter

1 16 ounce box powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup milk

Do not let the cream cheese cool to room temp. Your frosting will be wimpy and gross. 

Preheat oven to 350 and spray and line your muffin pans.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add in your flour and eggs and vanilla. Mix to a fair thee well. Pour into cups and bake for 30 minutes.

Icing: Cream butter and cream cheese together. Add your sugar a little bit at a time. Pour in your vanilla. Add the milk.

Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

Top with cute decorations and enjoy.
