Okay, I've had several of you ask how I do it....How do I make my cupcakes AND not eat them? Well....it's not easy that's for sure! But, do you know how many calories are in say my Butterfinger ones? (Which I call Don't Lay A Finger!) ;)
OHH MY GOODNESS! The frosting alone is packed full of fat/calories!
Don't get me wrong, they are DELICIOUS, but whew!
I like to try out new recipes, combine recipes, create my own recipes---then I use one to taste a bit of the cake. I use the same cupcake to taste a bit of the frosting with it when it's finished. Hubby shares the other half---and the rest....well go in the trash (EGADS! I know right?) Or sometimes I sell them or take them to a neighbor. I don't want them in the house. Willpower is SOO Hard.
Also, baking gets expensive when I'm trying out new recipes. Sometimes, if I'm just wanting to taste the "stuff" on the inside, or taste it with the frosting, I will use a box mix.
I've had a lot of you ask me for some of my cupcake recipes. Now mind you, I do sell cupcakes/baked goods too, so I can't be sharing all my recipes....but this is a quick BOX mix that I've tried and like. It's not as fattening as some recipes I've made...THANK GOODNESS! :)

I'm always looking for something quick to have on hand. Our lives can get so busy--whether we're back to work and have conferences, or we're running our kids to and from music/sports. Sometimes we have carry-ins at work, and it's always nice to have a quick recipe whether it is for those busy nights, or a snack for work. I love taking in goodies to my coworkers. :)
So friends-- Share what you're cooking this week. It can be an appetizer, sweet, main course or side dish. I'm not picky....just love new ideas! :)
