Hummingbird Cupcakes
This has been a long week. I have been extremely tired all week and have failed to get to sleep before 11pm. Not sure what my problem is but I hope that I get it together soon because this is nothing I want to get use too. Hopefully I can catch some rest this weekend.
Hummingbird Cupcakes
Anyways I made these wonderful cupcakes about 2 weeks ago just because I needed something sweet and a little different. I was glad they turned out great because this recipe made over 2 dozen cupcakes and I knew I wasn’t going to eat them all; so since it made so many I was able to share the love of these delicious cupcakes with others J!

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each one; then beat in the vanilla.
