Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes

I was inspired to make these after my first trip to Gigi’s Cupcakes. I noticed a similar cupcake and of course thought “how brilliant to make banana cream pie into a cupcake”!! I’ve never been a big fan of bananas- don’t get me wrong, I could eat fruit all day, but I kind of think […]
