I SWORE I'D NEVER MAKE CUPCAKES...


Yes call me crazy but until recently I swore I'd never bake cupcakes, because well I had a "thing" against them. Actually two things- first of all I hated the whole buttercream thing- eating a layer of butter mixed with sugar and other stuff grossed me out. And second of all, I didnt want to get excited over cupcake cuteness like the rest of the world.

But then one day everything changed. All because of a friend's birthday for whom I decided to make cupcakes for... and I do admit, they are indeed lots of fun to make. But I haven't sold my soul to buttercream yet... if I am going to make cupcakes again I definately need to find a healthier alternative to buttercream!


here they are- naked chocolate cuppies yet to be dressed!


Frosted...


Gold dusted...


And sprinkled in colours and shapes...


So who knows? Maybe one day I'll be writing up a second post on cupcakes...

You definitely should........

Ps. I am not a buttercream liker myself, don't feel bad!!!

Agree completely, excess buttercream makes me queasy, but yours are delightful. Cute, not like those monsters at Hummingbird Bakery. I'm told a visit to Bea's of Bloomsbury converts haters of those American-style cupcakes.

hey birgit- well the icing is one of the differences but also the texture of cupcakes is different- lighter and 'fluffier' then muffins. personally im more of a muffin person :)
