Move over chocolate, today is all about vanilla — vanilla cupcakes to be more specific. National Vanilla Cupcake Day may just be another food holiday, but we'll take any excuse to start the day off with a vanilla cupcake smothered in frosting.

Sure, you could visit your neighborhood bakery to celebrate this sweet treat, but take the extra minute to get out the mixing bowls at home and try Giada's five-star Vanilla Cupcake recipe.
