My mom made these Raspberry filled Almond Cupcakes for my baby shower…and I just made them for Violet’s 1st birthday party.  If you don’t love to bake—this recipe is for you.  I use cake mix.  The horror, I know!  People love these things…the leftovers went to the dental clinic at Nellis Air Force Base and I was told that they didn’t last long.
