They say that cupcakes are to the 2000's as Starbucks was to the 90's. In other words, a pretty major trend that you've most likely tried. Let's just hope that they don't become the next Krispy Kreme.
Here are a few creative recipes by 'Annie's Eats' that caught my eye. You can bet that I'll attempt the butterflies sometime soon.
Butterfly Cupcakes (these could serve as gorgeous decorations/dessert at a shower/birthday party)
S'mores Cupcakes (they speak for themselves)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes: (same as s'mores-YUM)
