We love cupcakes

Cupcakes, a sort of muffin imported from the US, have been the latest craze ever since they became popular, thanks to the TV series Sex and The City. Cupcake shops and classes are proliferating all over the most cosmopolitan cities of the world, and have also arrived to Madrid. 

What do these muffins have that everyone is crazy about them? After all, they are just that, muffins, although with some decoration on top. The truth is they are delicious, and I guess baking your own mini-cakes and decorating them has some appeal, and they look great in a party. Also, taking a basket full of cupcakes to a friend in need, just like Little Red Riding Hood, is quite a nice thing to do.

Below are the ones that my friend Elena baked for her Halloween party after taking a course at the shop Taste of America in Vallecas.

If you want to know more about cupcakes, I recommend you read the blog Objetivo: Cupcake Perfecto, written by Alma, who is crazy about them, and not only bakes them, but teaches you how to make your own!
