Bite size...Raspberry Cupcakes

One of our friend had his birthday today and he didn't want any crazy cake or party :( 
so I asked him what was his favorite dessert/pastry flavor, he said vanilla !
Vanilla itself was too boring I had to add something with it , let check in my fridge. 
BINGO ! I found some raspberries and raspberry jelly :)

So today the cupcakes are vanilla with a raspberry buttercream !
