The cupcakes are moist and sticky. They’re chewy, but still very light, not dense at all. They are very, very sweet. Not a strong peach flavor, just mostly sweet vanilla.

Raspberry-Whipped-Cream

The frosting is very fluffy. Cause it’s whipped cream. With raspberries folded in. Seriously. There’s nothing else to say. It’s dangerously yummy! Just fresh fruit and whipped cream. Yum, yum, yum!

The raspberries are actually the strongest flavor, which is surprising. The cupcakes are very sweet, with the little tart bites. These would be great summer cupcakes. Light and breezy. You could easily eat more than one, cause they’re not heavy or rich.
