Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

So… tonight is the much anticipated Bruce Jenner interview with Diane Sawyer (!!!). To honor the event properly, my SiL and I decided to host a viewing party complete with organic red wine and Paleo cupcakes. Planning, shopping, and baking started early this morning and has pretty much taken me all day. (EVERYTHING takes 100x longer when you have a four month old.) For anyone else, though, this recipe is super simple and quick and the finished product is amaaaaazing!! I tweaked the paleo vanilla cupcake recipe from The Wannabe Chef (used coconut sugar vs cane) and topped them with Elana’s Pantry’s paleo chocolate frosting, which is insanely simple and delicious, by the way. Now I don’t know which I’m more excited for: the cupcakes or the interview!!!
