Sherbert Cupcakes

Not only do these cupcakes look like rainbow sherbet, they taste exactly like it!

I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of making cupcakes. And I think they’ll always be a big hit at parties. Especially considering you really can flavor them and decorate them in an infinite number of ways.

 One dessert that I don’t think gets enough credit is sherbet. It seriously gets the short end of the stick and I’m pretty sure people should start paying it more attention. I mean what looks that pretty and taste that amazing!!

The fruity flavor of it and the colors make these Rainbow Sherbet Cupcakes seem like the perfect summer cupcake. This is a cupcake perfect for adults and the kids.

I also believe good desserts like these cupcakes deserved to be shared! (& if I don’t get them out of my house soon, I’ll eat them all!!).
