Last night our book club met to discuss Daisy Jones & the Six. I knew our hostess was planning to make lasagna so I decided to make my Holy Cannoli cupcakes. These are one of my favorite cupcakes!
While reading Jasmine Guillory’s The Proposal, the two main characters (Nik and Carlos) are in and out of Nik’s best-friends cupcake shop. You all I am a sucker for a cupcake and I couldn’t stop thinking about how awesome it would be to have my own cupcake shop and just create beautiful cupcakes for the rest of my life.

These pancakes are rich but light, fluffy but filling, sweet but nutritious.. okay, maybe not nutritious. But, oh so delicious!
