Raspberry Dessert Cakes

Some Boy loves raspberries, so I'm thinking I may surprise him with this treat as a send-off to kindergarten this year. I'm in complete denial that my biggest boy is headed to elementary school, so we'll just eat our feelings until the whole thing passes. That's the only way to handle life, obviously.

His favorite fruit plus my favorite chocolate cupcakes? Perfection.
