Pink Grapefruit Cupcakes (48 mini cupcakes)

Many of you know that I am a huge fan of cupcakes. To me there is nothing better then an ity bitty cake all to myself! I am not afraid to admit that I am one of the first ones at a birthday party to raid the cupcake tower. This month in Health Magazine they posted a super yummy recipe for pink grapefruit cupcakes. Since I am a firm believer that in order to live our healthiest life we must eat clean, I believe that treats and snacks should be homemade. In our home we eat delicious desserts and treats but they are made in my kitchen. This is a special treat recipe that I had to share with you!
