Everyone loves cupcakes. They are so pretty and perfectly portioned. They feel like a huge treat but without too much guilt. These gorgeous cupcakes are from Marthastewart.com, click the links to be taken to the recipe. Which one do you think I should bake this weekend?

  2. The best cupcakes I've ever made are the dark chocolate ones from Cook's Illustrated. Years ago I put the recipe up on flickr here (please excuse the photo taken in my pre-dSLR days) and NotMartha used it repeatedly with much success.

  8. Thanks all for the comments/ suggestions! I decided to bake the strawberry cupcakes, I have the most ingredients on hand. The Banana cupcakes are next on my list, but I need a few more days for the bananas to ripen. Happy saturday!!
