Looking for a sweet treat to celebrate mom on her special day? Check out this delicious raspberry maple Mother’s Day cupcake recipe to add to your Mother’s Day menu! My mom is a huge raspberry fan. When it is the raspberry season, she stocks up on them and enjoys them in a raspberry mousse, in a salad or just as.
After all, it is a delicious fruit with lots of health benefits. For this upcoming mother’s day, I decided to surprise her with Raspberry cupcakes. Who can resist cupcakes made with your favorite fruits? No one and especially not mom.
Though it is not Raspberry season, I managed to sneak out to her freezer and get some frozen ones. I had to involve my kids in this delicate maneuver. My seven-year-old was so excited to participate in this mini adventure. She was also eager to help with the decoration like she did for the Saint Patrick’s Day Cupcakes. It was hard to talk her out of the Wilton’s eyes, but we managed (after some bribes, sigh).
