Cupcakes We Love

September 6, 2012

A dessert perfectly portioned for one: you.


Just a few sweet bites of something homemade. That’s the beauty of cupcakes. They’re just the right amount of treat.

And they’re not just for children—a cupcake appeals to kids of all ages.

Make it plain or exotic. Choose a simple cake and an elaborate frosting, or go for a new flavor altogether.

Here are some cupcakes we love right now. You can leave them unfrosted, call them “muffins,” and serve them for breakfast. We won’t tell. In fact, we’ll be right over.
