This weekend was pretty productive. I made 3 cupcakes, and I'd say I'm making pretty good timing. When I have off for spring break I'll be able to get a lot done for sure! Right now I've been making at least 2 every weekend and sometimes during the week. The cupcakes are absolutely delicious and my official taste testers (mom and dad) love every single one! Sometimes it gets tiring and I get impatient making them, but I look forward to see how they are going to turn out in the end. And I also know what works and what doesn't work. There are a ton of chocolate cupcakes which makes me really happy because I love chocolate! I've been doing all the hard ones first so that in the end it'll be pretty easy to finish off the rest of the book.

So, the three posted below are VERY different. I made a roasted banana which was very good (if you like bananas), and flourless chocolate (the recipe called for vanilla ice cream but since I love chocolate, I topped mine with a dark chocolate ice cream to make it extra chocolatey), and lastly is a German chocolate. The inside is filled with pecans and coconut made with a chocolate cake!

ANOTHER CUPCAKE yaaay! This one wasn't really my favorite although it looks amazing. I think I put too much Amaretto in it which made it a little strong. And I always have a tough time with the whip cream so it was kind of liquidy and kept sliding off the top of the cupcake, which didn't exactly make it appealing.

Ah it's been too long and I've made a lot of cupcakes since the last post. I've gotten lazy but I'm just going to post the pictures right away!!

Banana Pecan Cupcake: warm banana muffin with crunchy pecans!
Snickerdoodle Cupcake: just like the cookie but better! Definitely one of my favorites!
Streussel Cupcake: another one of my favories, it tastes just like a crumb cake! I'll definitely make this again!

Marble Cupcake: vanilla and chocolate cake garnished with powdered sugar. Simple but sweet!
Strawberry Cupcake: SO good! With the strawberries baked in to the cake, strawberry buttercream frosting and fresh strawberries for garnish, this one is for ALL strawberry lovers. YUM

Tres Leches Cupcake: made with 3 different types of milk for a very moist cake!
