I am a lover of all things cute, and in my eyes, there aren’t many desserts that are quite as cute as cupcakes. Maybe it’s because they’re a mini version of a regular cake, and miniature things are inherently cute. (And, don’t even get me started on mini cupcakes – in the words of Rachel Zoe, I die.)

Over the past few years a cupcake craze has swept the nation – I can think of 5 cupcake bakeries here in Austin alone. (PS – I think I may have seriously missed my calling on that one…) Cupcakes are available in every flavor imaginable, and there are equally as many options for outfitting yourself and your kitchen in cupcake bling. I mean, why not?

So go ahead…have your cupcake, and eat it, too!
