Vanilla Cupcakes

Who doesn't love cupcakes? Chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, I love them all the same. I'll admit that store bought packages can be super convenient but nothing beats the taste of homemade. I pulled these together one night when my other half got a craving and minus the photo time it didn't take long at all.
