I think my fascination is primarily my ability to make as few as 2 or as many of 24 of these gems at a time.  That and, for some odd reason, little cakes seem more to lend themselves to flavor experimentation.  I know that’s silly, because large cakes would arguably be easier to create, in some ways.

Somewhere on my computer, I have an idea sheet.  I compiled a list of all possible flavors, fruity and otherwise, that I could think of.  From there, I simply mix and match to create ideas for delectable cupcakes.  I’ve far from tried them all, in part because I’m on a sort of forced vacation.  But soon, my pretty little things, soon.
