 Even though this is a design blog, I decided we’ll have a little cupcake of the month post. In honor of Natalie, Jack-Jack, and baby Froe (now know as Vanessa), I made dark chocolate Guinness cupcakes with ganache, whipped cream, and fresh berries. Oh sweet Ireland, you gave us U2, Van Morrison, the Cranberries, and last but not least Guinness-the only beer I can drink. I love you Ireland. And you too Miss June.
