Cupcakes by Martha Stewart

I love cupcakes. I would usually rather have a cupcake than a piece of cake. The best cupcakes that I have EVER had were cupcakes from the famous Sprinkles Bakery in Newport Beach, CA. When I went to NYC in March, I wanted to find a cupcake that matched Sprinkles soooo bad but none came close. The best cupcakes that I have found in Lynchburg, VA where I live are at Montana Plains Bakery. They are very moist and the icing is amazing.

I made a huge splurge recently and purchased Martha Stewart's new book Cupcakes. I never buy cookbooks at full price. I would rather find them somewhere like a yard sale or used book store. I just couldn't wait to get this one though.

I have decided that I am going to challenge myself and try to make a recipe a week from Martha's book until I get through them all. I read that there are 128 different recipes in the book. I may skip a few if they just really don't appeal to me.

My plan is to try my first pick this weekend. I am most likely going to do make the Yellow Buttermilk Cupcakes with Fluffy Vanilla Frosting. Stay tuned!!
