Cupcakes Cupcakes Cupcakes!

I was craving cupcakes BIG TIME during my visit to Portland.  I don't know why.  But because Mark and I got a little too drunk during wine country day, I never got to venture out to get cupcakes while the shops were still open.  

So, tonight I finally quenched my craving by making Peanut Butter Cup-Cup Cakes, which were my own creation.  Basically I made devils food cake bater, and while the cupcakes were baking I took them out and inserted a mini peanut butter cup in the batter.  When the cakes were done, I frosted them w/ homemade peanut butter buttercream icing (make a regular buttercream and replace half of the butter with peanut butter).  OMG THEY ARE SO GOOD!

That's all I have to say.

You should really make them.  If you don't have peanut butter cups on hand, it might work just as well to add a small dollop of peanut butter in the middle of batter during baking.  Tell me if it works.

by the way, i read all of these. i had to catch up so comments are lacking. but these cupcakes sound delicious and very stealable...which i will do. soon. and i will tell you if it works because i do not have peanut butter cups, unless i take a glass and coat the inside with peanut butter. and then drink milk out of it. .......hmm.......

Haha, thanks! They WERE good! Unfortunatly, I made them, like, a day or two before I moved so I didn't have a chance to eat them much. Which was a good/bad thing.
