~Spiced Cakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting~

Spiced cakes for a friend's mother this past Mother's Day...
These pretty little cakes are spiced with clove, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and allspice. The smell was intoxicating! Vanilla bean butter cream frosting piped on with a basic round tip and then the requested chocolate hearts (made from milk chocolate and white chocolate that I laced with ground clove) on top. The chocolates were made with a simple heart shaped mold. Let them set then pop them out. I really enjoyed making so many cupcakes for Mother's Day this year. Orange and white polka dot liners from were also a nice colorful touch she requested.
