 There is no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than baking with sisters and no more delightful treat to make than cupcakes! That’s what my sisters and I did today. I ♥ Cupcakes!! :) Add sprinkles to the mix and you have the perfectly perky dessert. :)  The base is a delicious Cream Cheese pound cake and the icing a sweet  cream cheese buttercream frosting. Supremely delicious! We’re wearing our Liberty of London Cecily headcoverings(for the girls too here ♥) today! :)

  • 1 bar (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5
