Who doesn't love a bitty bite of cake? For party-day ease, make the cupcakes one month before and freeze. Prep the accessories two days ahead and store at room temp in an airtight container. Whip up the frosting and assemble the cupcakes in no time on the big day! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

My husband and I have two grown children and three granddaughters.

This recipe's been in our family for years, but these cupcakes still go quick each time I make them. So I always double or triple the ingredients!
You'll likely see what I mean if you make them at your place—I can't remember anyone who's tried them for the first time not asking for seconds.
Just in time for May 11 this year come these delicate butterfly confections from Sayreville, New Jersey subscriber Adeline Piscitelle. "They aren't difficult at all to shape," she assure. "They've been a favorite in our family for years. Now, I make them for my grandchildren."
