Neapolitan cupcakes w/ cream cheese frosting

So I was originally planning on posting my painted rug and new chest today…BUT cute little Emme “painted” over my new rug with liquid foundation. If you follow me on facebook or instagram you saw the damage. :( I’m thinking I’ll paint over it again because that makeup is not coming out. SO hopefully I can get that done today, so you can see it tomorrow. :)

As for today… I’m going to share these yummy neapolitan cupcakes I made for my friend Kristyn’s Birthday party this past weekend. They were super easy to make and turned out delicious. The strawberry + brownie combo = yummo!
