When the plants start to come back to life after a long winter slumber, people start coming out of their houses more and barbecues pop up all over. This year, why not try making these Spring Cupcakes to take to the next barbecue party? These sweet treats include a mouthwatering icing that can be changed based on the colors of the party.
