Spring Cupcakes

Manila mangoes are in season right now so I thought I’d make one of my favorite desserts – mango cake but in this case, mango cupcakes.
The ones I got were from Ciruli Brothers.
I made the cupcakes with Trader Joe’s vanilla cake mix then added mango slices in the batter before pouring into the¬†muffin pan. For the frosting – heavy whipping cream, confectioners sugar and puree from half a mango. I did not measure the proportions – just by thickness and consistency.
These bulbs just sprouted in our front yard.

I was going to post some spring flower pictures from our garden but for some reason they were not coming out right in wordpress. Oh well, here’s one anyway.
