Are you a chocolate junkie, I confess I am.  There’s not a single day that goes without having chocolate in
some form.  Screams celebration when there is chocolate and cake.  I truly believe you can win over anyone with these these beautiful looking cupcakes.  Cupcakes with all it’s glory has become a star the past few years, with Cupcake Wars(which i religiously watch) and shops dedicated purely to these sugary goodies..   Why not right, they are portioned out, you think of a flavor, you can make them or find em’ and most of all loved by most.

Summer is almost here and the schools are slowing down..yayyyy for that.  End of the year parties are on full swing.  There’s always a demand for a good cupcake.  But the allergy free ones are requested even more.  When you think  of  Vegan/allergy free muffins,,you squiggle your nose and imagine how could that be good…But believe me, these are moist, flavorful, very decadent and extremely easy to whip up.  Dress em’ up with a good frosting and topping or just garnish with powdered sugar, they taste good any way.
