Mini Maple-Walnut Canada Day Cupcakes

Okay, so I’m a little bit late on this post, I’ll admit, but I’m getting a little preoccupied with school these days. As I sit here in bed at 2 in the morning trying to make sense of all that I’ve studied today, I might as well take a little break and make time for this while it can still be considered fashionably late!

I made plans for July 1st and let me tell you, baking was NOT on the agenda. But when my Dad brought home this beautiful bottle of authentic Quebecois maple syrup I was inspired to pump out the quickest batch of maple walnut cupcakes with maple syrup buttercream that the western world had ever seen!

Sure, they’re nothing extraordinary on an aesthetic level, but I promise they made up for it in taste. Oh, and shame on me I don’t own any maple leaf fondant cutters (imagine that!) so bear with me these daisies will just have to do for now!

Happy belated Canada Day to all of my fellow proud Canadians!
