I am not a cupcake fan. Apologies to all cupcake lovers out there but I think that cupcakes are a little bit overrated. I admit they’re nice to look at and very pretty but I don’t find the taste awesome. I really like my desserts to be rich and decadent and with cupcakes, I find the frosting too sweet and the cake lacking. This is why I love muffins, what you see is what you get. No need for fancy toppings. Just great dessert.
That said, I do realize that I have to start making cupcakes. I know if something looks delectable, people are more willing to try it than if it looks plain. So I have decided to start making cupcakes. Eventually, I do want to learn frosting and decorating. I will just ensure that the frosting and the cake would taste great. Since I don’t have any decorating tools yet, I have decided to browse the internet for cupcake flavors other than vanilla or chocolate. I came across the Cake Mistress and decided to give her cappuccino cupcake recipe a try.
The cupcake turned out okay (like I said, I’m not a cupcake lover). It wasn’t too sweet and I actually ate two with my coffee, twice (once in the morning and once in the afternoon). You don’t feel like you’re indulging too much so it’s easy to overeat.
I made it without the liquor. Maybe I should try it with liquor next time, maybe that’s the secret ingredient to bring it the next level. In any case, it’s still a good cupcake. I’ve enjoyed it with my coffee again this morning and I’m pretty sure I’ll have another couple later this afternoon. 🙂
