Fancy cupcake places are on the rise. The cupcakes are gorgeously decorated, sold by the piece and are very expensive. But no matter how fantastic they look, they will never taste as good as mine. The crumb of these cupcakes is nothing short of amazing. The vanilla flavour is only the beginning. These cupcakes can be easily transformed with fruits, nuts and different flavourings. Which is the reason I didn’t include the icing I used, because really... any icing would be delicious with these cupcakes. They look ordinary but just wait until you bite into one.
