I Love Cupcakes

Everything cupcakes! Have you noticed how popular cupcakes have become? Whole cookbooks are devoted to cupcake recipes. Craft magazines give half of their pages to cupcake crafts. Many card makers are using cupcakes as the object of their card. Soap makers are even making cupcake soaps that look edible, complete with swirled soap frosting and all. Cupcakes are definitely IN!

Off to the kitchen to make cupcakes...

Here's a favorite recipe with a new twist!
