Happy Monday! Today for Cupcake Monday, my lovely friend, Jill from Modern Cupcake is sharing her Peppermint Cream Cheese frosting recipe (as seen in The Party Dress magazine). Before we jump to her recipe, I just want to introduce you to Jill. She is an amazing baker, interior designer and has an incredible eye for style. Lucky for me, we live a few miles apart. Her red velvet cupcakes are beyond delicious. Jill recently started a lifestyle blog filled with all things that inspire her, not just baking and I’m loving it. I think you will, too. Let’s get back to that frosting recipe and then hop over and check out Jill’s blog!
