I felt like I was running a cupcakery this morning. Cupcakes + bakery = Cupcakery

I was playing around with this little toy. A Babycakes Cupcake Maker.

I was asked by Babycakes and Select Brands to be part of their Treats Team and anytime I can “work” by making cupcakes and treats, that’s “work” I like to have.

And making cupcakes is what I’ve been doing. Let’s just say I’ve made more than a dozen.

I came up with this batter. It involves peanut butter and it’s crazy good. Recipes to follow one of these days or weeks.

And the frosting involves lots of this.

Squares of chocolate

There was more butter, sugar, and chocolate smeared everywhere in my kitchen today than I’d like to admit, but I’m taking my Treats Team position seriously.

It was all in the name of recipe research and development. Ahem.

I worked so hard that it’s time for a strawberry cookie break. Salads are over-rated anyway.

What’s your favorite cupcake flavor? Frosting flavor? Cupcake combination?

Anything involving peanut butter and chocolate is good in my book, but I want to make gingerbread, pumpkin, strawberry, and red velvet cupcakes.

Even if certain flavors may not be “seasonal” or timely right now, I happen to have a craving for pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting that I apparently didn’t get out of the way last November.  At least these are seasonal.
