Creative Cupcakes & Ideas
Cupcakes are my favorite dessert to make. There are no limits to the types and varieties you can create. From French Vanilla to Citrus flavors, to Veggie ingredients (carrot cake). Then you have fillings to choose from, ganaches, custards, and more. There is no end to possibilities for this amazing gourmet dessert.
These desserts can be for snacks, parties, baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and beyond.
Then when it comes to decorations, it goes even further to the imagination. You can make cupcakes look like a cake. They can look like a flower bouquet. You can decorate with frosting and fondant. Cupcakes come in all sizes from small, medium, large, and even mega cupcakes.
You can add decorations on top, make a design inside so when you cut into it you can see it. It is so versatile and fun and tasty. It is the best little dessert you can make.
