CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2020!
With plans having to be postponed or cancelled, we know that your graduation may not have happened the way you had planned. I personally understand the disappointment since I was supposed to attend my high school graduation which has now been cancelled. However, our team at Karuna is here to celebrate your success with these delicious mango cupcakes!
With a tropical hint, they’re perfectly soft and airy with a lovely bite of smooth cream cheese filling in the middle. These cupcakes are perfect for a graduation celebration! Hop on a Zoom call with your family and friends and celebrate this moment of achievement with them! Unfortunately, they won’t be able to enjoy these cupcakes with you (you can always send them this recipe 😉), but that also means you get the entire batch to yourself… You deserve it!
