If you are planning a shower for a bride or a baby or just simply a get together with your friends and family, here are some ideas for you.

Here is a very simple, elegant, great recipe for you to serve…

Neopolitan Cupcakes

This recipe calls for both devils food cake mix and vanilla cake mix, which are prepared separately. The following ingredients are added to each mix, as follows: 3 eggs, l/2 cup oil, l cup milk, l/3 c. sour cream, and 2 tsp vanilla extract.

Mix together and prepared as directed on the package (2 minutes at medium speed) - line cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

Spoon 2 T. of devils food batter into each of the 24 cupcake liners.

Then after you prepare the vanilla cake mix, spoon 2 T. of the vanilla cake batter over the devils food cake batter Bake for 16-19 minutes in a 350 degree oven if using a silver pan; if using glass or black-coated pan, 325 degree oven. Cool.

Spread with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting; ½ cup + 2 Tbsp. strawberry puree (use your blender to puree); cream together 3/4 c. butter; vanilla (1/4 tsp) and the strawberry puree.

Gradually add 2 -2 /2 cups of confectioners sugar and mix together.

Spread over cupcakes and top with a strawberry.

Etc. — This recipe is so easy because you use cake mixes. It is so very moist and colorful!

Also, a little tidbit- wrap a paper doily around your invitation and tie with a ribbon.

You would be surprised how pretty this is!
