My mom's retirement party is in 10 days.  I volunteered to make the cupcakes.

She absolutely loves the Pumpkin Spice WASC recipe I use.  However, that doesn't seem like a "spring" flavor to me.


As of now, I am making Vanilla, Vanilla filled with Raspberry, both with traditional buttercream; Lemon with Whipped Lemon Frosting (some might be filled with raspberry as well)


I need something else. . .


One idea I had was Banana Butterscotch as it doesn't seem quite as "fall-ish".


Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

Lime.  Peach.  Pina Colada.  Coconut.


Anything that gives you a pastel shade.

AI think you should do a chocolate one because you have a fruit flavor and a vanilla flavor. That way you cover all the bases. Chocolate is always in season, well, except for me since I don't like it haha.
