mmmm cupcakes

There is nothing that satisfies my sweet tooth more than a cupcake. 

They are my favorite dessert to make and my absolute favorite dessert to eat! I love that they are small, elegant, and customizable! I tend to cook mini cupcakes a lot more because they are bite-size and adorable (I'm a fan of everything miniature). One of my favorite mini cupcake recipes is Mascarpone Mini Cupcakes by Giada De Laurentiis. They are moist and delicious. I exclude the strawberry glaze featured in the recipe- I tried it the first time I made this recipe and I was not impressed. Instead I use any frosting- store bought or handmade (I prefer handmade).  I have tried a handful of different frosting recipes but two of my favorites are Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Lemon Buttercream Frosting
