These cupcakes are goooood! I love baking sweets, and I love eating them, although I have a hard time keeping them in my house without wanting to eat them all.  So when I had a desire to make these cupcakes, I decided that I would bring them to our Olympic lifting class the next day and let them taste-test it.  Everyone seemed to like them and I was really happy with how they turned out.  They were nice and moist, and not too rich or too sweet.  I want to make more right now and eat them all.  But that probably isn’t the best idea.

Ignore my wonky frosting job, this was my first time ever frosting cupcakes without just using a spatula to glob it over the top.  They may not be the prettiest, but they sure tasted good!
