Tres leches cupcakes

I am always craving something. This time a "Pastel de las tres Leches " (three milk cake). This is one of my favorite cakes. It is also very popular in Mexico.
I decided to make only half the recipe (so, I don't eat all) and with a little twist, I made instead of one cake bunch of cupcakes. I love mine very moist. You will see in the pictures how the milks come out the bread. I topped them with homemade whip cream and pieces of mango. I know they loaded with calories, but they were just really GOOD.

Chloe's 4th birthday

Our family from Belgium visited us in DC two weeks ago and on that weekend our niece, Chloe, was celebrating her 4ht birthday. I jumped on the opportunity to celebrate with her and make her feel special. By the way, she is an adorable girl.

I styled a birthday table using pink and blue colors. I baked a fun cake (three different color layers) and chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I arranged some candy treats and snacks . I set a pretty table for the kids and of course we had favor bags full of fun stuff. My two kids and Chloe enjoyed every single detail it was on the table. They cut and served themselves the cake, they tried and destroyed everything. It was just FUN!
