Cupcakes

Do you enjoy cupcakes?

Where do you get your cupcakes from?

What is the best kind of cupcake from said place of cupcake gettingness?


Unfortunately Boyfriend has no cupcake allergies so I can't make fun of him and stuff my face with them and cackle. No he isn't lactose intolerant so I can't catch him on that end.

So talk to me about cupcakes.

I only get cupcakes from the near expiration date bin at local grocery stores for a buck.
Then eat them all in one sitting.

Do you enjoy cupcakes? Yup!

Where do you get your cupcakes from? I'm so incredibly picky about my cupcakes that I can barely even find on that tickles my fancy at normal shops. There's a local bakery in my town that has [some of] the most delicious cupcakes that I've ever had. Then there was this little place in Maryland. I live on the west coast. Other than that, I just make my own cranberry kutchen cupcakes with a cinnamon crumble. OMNONM

What is the best kind of cupcake from said place of cupcake gettingness? Lime Marguerite, plain ole birthday cake, red velvet...I also seem to have an attraction to any blue iced or fondanted cakes no matter the flavor.

I like them unless they're over-frosted

Sweet dreams bakery in Illinois has fantastic cupcakes. My favorites are the ones with cheesecake in them.

There is also a book called "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" which has some great recipes in it.

Pretty much everything Lithium Flower posts makes me smile with joy. This thread especially so.

Do you enjoy cupcakes? Yes. Yes. A thousand times yes.

Where do you get your cupcakes from? I bake them. My grandmother bakes them. A guy at Wal*Mart bakes them- but never as nicely as my grandmother. :'C

What is the best kind of cupcake from said place of cupcake gettingness? Oh man. Can't really choose... Chocolate, lemon, red velvet, marble, vanilla... As long as it either has no icing or chocolate icing I'm good. *swoon*

Cupcakes are muffins' fat, lazy younger siblings.

And muffins are assimilated strudels.

And bagels are Jewish.

Do you know how much I love you, Drawberry?

Do you enjoy cupcakes? Oh hells yes.

Where do you get your cupcakes from?
I prefer to make them myself, although sometimes in a pinch a supermarket cupcake will fill a hole. They're completely unexciting, though. LI, for some reason, never really cashed in on the cupcake craze; we do have a few Crumbs bake shops, though, and they specialize in cupcakes. One of those is a little treat every now and then. Or a big treat, rather; their servings are like the size of three normal cupcakes.

What is the best kind of cupcake from said place of cupcake gettingness? My favorite from Crumbs is the Grasshopper-- chocolate cake with fudge filling, topped with mint cream cheese and mini chocolate chips. I normally don't like chocolate too much, but will make an exception for chocolate-mint.

So far, my crowning achievement in cupcakes were the Jewels of Y'ha-Nthlei; they were green tea cakes with matcha-cream cheese frosting. I molded several batches of jewel-shaped hard candies, embellished them with royal icing, then painted them with luster dust. They looked pretty rad, and tasted even radder. I wound up liking the green tea flavors so much I repeated them in my birthday cake later that year.

Right now I'm trying to come up with some good ideas for my baby shower. Sometimes there are just too many cool things to do with cupcakes, it's hard to come up with just one solution. One of my favorite things about the little delights, though, is that they make it easy to do variations; you don't have to stick with the same exact thing for every cupcake in the batch. I'm pretty big on diversity and junk.

Sounds like somebody could use a cupcake.

I love cupcakes. I know we have a cupcake shop in town, but it's not near me, so I don't bother. Usually I just have them made at home, so I haven't tried any fancy flavors. I do enjoy a red velvet one with... I think it's cream cheese frosting?

My favourite is the oreo party one. Chocolate cupcake, nougat-y icing with mini Oreos :3

Yes, there is no thought to this question

Where do you get your cupcakes from?
I love to cook, so if I have everything to make them, then I will. If not, or I'm to lazy, I go to the near by baker shop and get the giant ones

What is the best kind of cupcake from said place of cupcake gettingness?
Red velvet, chocolate, all kinds, oh and ones that have filling in them
