I'm ready to jump on the cupcake bandwagon. Here in the sticks, you can't find a cupcake store that has all those fancy (and expensive) cupcakes. I love to bake, so I would love to try making specialty cupcakes on my own. I have made cupcakes before for NE's 3rd birthday that I decorated with all that buttercream icing, and they looked great, but the cupcakes themselves were just strawberry cake mix (that's what she wanted).
I really want to start testing out fancy cupcake flavors as well as icing. The only real problem with this is that I don't think I should be EATING the cupcakes, especially the way they are decorated now with an inch of frosting on top! I'm not sure how I am supposed to test out recipes without eating them... Once I figure that out, I can really start trying out recipes. Eventually, I would like to test out low-fat, low-sugar recipes and try to make them taste really good. Somehow, I think the buttercream frosting is the part that will be hard, if not impossible to recreate in a lower calorie version.
