Muffins are Ugly Cupcakes


         While there are many recipies for many things, the best recipies are for cupcakes. They are muffins with a sickening amount of sugar on them. They are like muffins with fancy hats.  While muffins are the  over proctective hover mothers protecting their “temple” with SPF 90 and wicker garden hats, raising vegan/vegetarian/gluten free/sugar free children in the suburbs; Cupcakes are the ladies in the south, frying bananas and spicing up their gumbo, going to church to compete in the unspoken competition of who has the best hat. Both are good, one is even by far healthier, but if you were to have a party, who would you rather invite?

My friend just got a cupcake book from the library with loads of toppings to make your cupcakes exciting, 


I also just recently read through Martha Stewarts Cupcakes


I could feel a sugar high just looking at them.
Here are some examples from each book; First from What’s New, Cupcake? (which, I found out, is a sequel ((YES a COOKBOOK sequel ftw!)) to Hello Cupcake!) My Favourites from this book are the ones that look like other food. There are of course cupcakes that don’t look like other food in the book.

Main Course - Take out Cup Cakes!

Jelly Belly Kernels!

And Pie for Dessert! the "fruit" are smarties 🙂

 Martha Stewart’s look a little more classy but just as fun to make!

Candied Hazelnuts

Obviously we had to make some… this is what ours looked like

Too bad thinking about eating that much sugar gives me a headach :/

  1. Am I allowed to enjoy eating muffins too? I went to look up the difference between muffins and cupcakes (the batter, muffins are made from “quickbread” batter while cupcakes are made with cake based batter) and came across this website: http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2007/02/recipe-index.html. It looks like it has many yummy recipes as well! Your cupcakes look AMAZING! I love to decorate cakes too, I will bake for any occasion including my cats’ birthdays!
