All throughout my life my mom baked. When I was really little she decorated cakes professionally. She would create them on the side for all the holidays & events. She would also make them for friends & family because she was always less expensive than a bakery & did a phenomenal job. Her cakes were absolutely, over the top incredible! She had a ton of different recipes for her cakes, but my favorite was always the vanilla. As much as I love chocolate, the vanilla cake will forever be my top choice. I don’t know what it is, but that flavor always triggered something within me that told me it was special. It could be that we always enjoyed it on a special occasion, but whatever it is, I just can’t get enough. These are the Best Bakery-Style Vanilla Cupcakes ever!
So I thought it would be great to share with you some of her best & most requested recipes. These are the recipes she passed down to me & the ones I make the most often. Because everyone loves a good ‘ol bakery cupcake, I figured I would start with the traditional vanilla. You will 100% fall in love with this recipe. It’s easy & they come out perfect every single time.
