Aren’t these cupcakes just adorable?! If you are having a baby and want to surprise everyone with the gender (or if you know someone who is) I highly recommend making these cupcakes. The frosting is pink and blue and once everyone bites into it, they will either get a blue or pink heart! They are actually pretty easy to make and taste delicious since they are made from scratch. Enjoy!
