Cupcake Confections

I am a cupcake lover but, recently they have been featured everywhere and their stock value has pretty such sky rocketed! There has been a flavor these Bacon Maple Cupcakes from the Milwaukee Cupcake Queen who writes a blog called "No One Puts Cupcake in a Corner" (seriously love the name!!)

And while we are talking about bacon cupcakes....I have to mention that if your hunka, hunka burning love has a thing for Elvis might want to think of serving your guests an Elvis Cupcake!

Banana Bread Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Bacon

I was first turned onto the cupcake craze when someone told me about Sprinkles cupcakes - they brand themselves by being "the original cupcake bakery". Since then, there has been a serious cupcake explosion! Now, we have Cupcake Camps in most major cities that benefit non-profits (there is a Cupcake Camp being held in Los Angeles THIS weekend!). There are fancy couture cupcake wrappers for all occasions and the flavors are pretty much endless - the largest cupcake menu I found while writing this was from Yummy Cupcakes in Los Angeles. Currently, they have 212 cupcake flavors!! Seriously. I dunno....I kind of like chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting...the kind I always made as a kid...what about you? Are you a cupcake connoisseur?
