We baked a batch of good old classic cupcakes to celebrate the weekend! These are moist and fluffy – and will instantly transport you back to childhood days.

You can create flavored cupcakes by switching around the frosting – add in some melted chocolate, strawberry puree or banana essence! Garnish your frosted cupcakes with chocolate chips, chocolate drizzle or toasted chopped nuts.

Try them this weekend – we insist!
