For some reason, my whole life I thought cupcakes are only very good looking little creatures. Well I was wrong! Deeply wrong.
Actually first cupcake I ever tasted was on US ground. One of my girlfriend's husband bought some cupcakes for us and of course its not nice to say NO, right?! Well I can say one thing, thank God I was on the back seat of the car! It was a mini carrot cake cupcake and I almost ate the liner paper as well. Then with my mouth full (like a chipmunk) I declared : OMG Cupcakes are soooo good!!!
Back then I had a full time job, no kids and truth but hilarious not that much time for baking!
Later on I incorporate them in my recipe index, because I believe it's a great way to bond with the little ones around the kitchen . :) So while I was searching for some delicious recipes, I came across Laura Vitale's Red Velvet Cupcakes. As far as now I haven't tried anything better, or even close to this simple and delicious cupcake. The only difference is that I skipped the food coloring part (just personal preference) and this is how my cupcake became a vanilla bean one. But if you want to try the original recipe, l will add the link below.
Honestly this is my to go recipe. I received so many compliments even from people who did not liked cupcakes before ! (BIG smile). So lets get started and convert some more !:)
