      Those are adorable! Truth be told, though, I’d just take the bowl of frosting, grab a spoon, and eat myself into a sugar coma with that amazing stuff!

      That’s so nice… nothing like rain and a cool breeze to feel like baking! Those look so good! … BTW… the Cherry Streussel Muffins turned out amazing! Hubby doesn’t like most desserts with fruit but he loved these! Thank you!

      you can never go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate! they are two of the most amazing flavors ever made and when they marry each other in cupcakes like yours, the result is awesome!!! :P

      my peanut butter frosting is slightly different than yours… i don’t add butter. i will try this next time and see if i can still use it to decorate…hehehe

      They look fantastic! My fiance loves chocolate and peanut butter together, so whenever I make desserts, they tend to be of that variety.
