I'm a slaaaaave for cupcakes....

Did you know last week was National Cupcake Week?
At least that's what I saw on Facebook.

I was too lazy to drive to a cupcakery. 
So I slaaaaved in the kitchen to make cupcakes.
How could I not have a cupcake during National Cupcake Week?

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing and fresh strawberries on top. 
Are you drooling yet? They were delish, and since we had a little watch party for our Houston Cougars game this past weekend I layed some out for our guest. They raved! 
i have a little secret to share with you.

I don't always have time to bake from scratch. 
I also don't want to pay $3.75 for one cupcake all the time when I feel like having a good cupcake!
For approximately $6.00 we had 24 cupcakes! 
For me, baking (and cooking) is a stress reliever. 
You can have delicious cupcakes with out spending hours in the kitchen.
Bake from your heart, and you will have yummy baked goods!

Do you like to bake? 
I actually don't like to bake cakes.
Those stress me out! ...and I can't decorate those for the life of me! 
What is your favorite thing to bake?

    I prefer to bake from scratch - more rewarding for me. My favorite things to bake are cupcakes, cookies, and breads/buns. I love trying out unique recipes. I made Root Beer Float Cupcakes and took them to a cookout at my brother's and they were a hit!
