Crazy Cupcakes*

 Now that I continue to bake all the time. And I'm not even kidding when I say that. My weekends consist no longer of going out with friends... because I'm in the kitchen. But one of my friends was searching the Internet, and he came across these color burst cupcakes. He was so amazed at them, and he told me that I couldn't do that. Here is proof that I did.
These cupcakes are so much fun. My favorite part had to be mixing the different colors into the bowls of batter. The worst part was the time it took to make one single cupcake! Spoonful of each color, dip finger in water, smooth out batter, another spoonful of a different color, finger in water, and so on. I made these with a cream cheese frosting- because cream cheese is my absolute favorite. And topped them with colorful sprinkles! It's too bad that I didn't have tie-dye cupcake liners :)                                                                                          

Next on the list was chocolate peanut butter cupcakes. Whenever I hear chocolate and peanut butter in the same sentence, I automatically think heaven. As of right now, these cupcakes are my favorite flavor of all I have ever tried. The peanut butter frosting was so light, but had so much flavor.
My mom is really into taking pictures, so as I play around in the kitchen, she thinks she needs to document everything. I personally think the stone behind our counter tops fits the cupcakes very well! I don't know what I'd do without my mother. Thank goodness for moms :)
