O.k. I'm addicted to cupcakes! There. I've said it. It all started out so innocently. But now, all I want to do is bake cupcakes and eat cupcakes. And, to top it off, I must watch every single episode of "Cupcake Wars" for an extra fix!
Here's how it all got started: A Facebook friend posted how much she loved cupcakes from a new Cupcake business just starting in my town. I was intrigued. This new business doesn't have a storefront, but delivered samples to different businesses throughout
town each day to advertise. They delivered a half dozen one day to my place of business. Pretty smart. And, it worked. Now, they are THE business to place cupcakes oders from in my area. Everyone is placing orders for birthdays, weddings, company events, you
name it. They sell out at the local farmer's market every week and now they're planning a "CUPCAKE CALENDAR." The price per one regular sized cupcake is $3.
Well, I got to thinking. Hey, I can make cupcakes. And, it does seem to be the thing right now!!! I can do this. So, one Saturday morning, I baked up a dozen cupcakes using a cake mix. Hey, I was just experimenting at this point. They were good, but after watching
"Cupcake Wars" and sampling a $3 Chocolate Bacon Cupcake from the now famous cupcake baker in my town, I just couldn't use a cake mix my second time out. I started searching for cupcakes recipes on AR, and, well,.... as they say, the rest is history.
I've baked all the customary flavors; white, chocolate, strawberry and have moved on more exotic recipes. I just recently found an outlet for culinary grade Lavender and the moment it arrives, I'll be baking some Lavender Lemon Cupcakes. I'm looking for more
cupcake recipes. Please share any "unusual" recipes you may have, as I must bake, must bake,....muuusssttt......baaakkkeee......
