Apricot Pistachio Cupcakes to Welcome Baby Alicia!


I have a great news to share with everyone.  My one and only brother Jean had his first baby girl this weekend.   I became an auntie to a beautiful baby girl Alicia.  She is  so tiny but yet so perfect and precious in every way.  To welcome baby Alicia home, I decided to make some mini cupcakes. I had purchased the baby cupcake kit from Macy’s few month’s back and thought it would be nice to bake them and take them to the hospital when visiting the baby.  Fortunately mommy and baby were doing well and they were released the next day so the cupcakes  ended up at home instead of the hospital.

Alicia sound asleep…

These cupcakes are not quite the traditional cupcakes since they do not have any icing.  You are more thann welcome to add your favorite icing.  Since I was rushing to go see the baby instead I decided to sprinkle them with some powdered sugar.  They were still tasty and perfect for entertaining.


This  recipe was inspired from Giada De Laurentiis’ Almond, Pine Nut, Apricot Crumb Cake

    My heartfelt congratulations to your brother; your mom looks so happy. I am told time and again that becoming a grandmother is a blessing and I am sure she feels it. These cupcakes look adorable and delicious and perfect for the occasion! Personally, I prefer them without frosting anyway.
