I celebrated my 27th birthday last week. Twenty-seven! It still feels weird to say that. In my head I will forever be 25. Anyone else like that? I thought by now, after getting married, paying taxes, etc. I would feel like an adult. That’s the funny thing about getting older I guess. You always think you are going to have it all figured out by a certain age, but one those milestone birthdays come and go you realize there is so much more in life to experience and learn.
To celebrate where I am in life now, I decided to treat myself to two of my favorite desserts – chocolate covered strawberries and angel food cake. I had never tried making angel food cupcakes before and was worried on how they would fare without being cooled upside down, but I was surprised on how well they turned out! Topped with a chocolate covered strawberry and a few fresh blooms, these cupcakes were the perfect birthday treat.
