I'm a sucker. A sucker for swirls of frosting, colorful sprinkles, and dense, dense chocolatey goodness. So why is it that these little cupcake bites have been sitting in queue for over three months? Travesty, I tell you! Either that, or it's a sign of how possessive I am of certain things. Cute, little, chocolatey things, happily sprinkled with little pastel butterflies or bright flowers.
These came after a failed attempt at cupcake bites - red velvet, in fact. I used a box mix (horrors!), and every time I went to take pictures of them, I got irritated at how red my fingers got. That. is. not. natural. Pretty, yes. Natural, not so much. So I went on a small hiatus from these little goodies, until I made a chocolate cake that rose so much it caved in near the end of baking. Since it would be a little difficult to make the cake aesthetically pleasing in the form it was in, I went to a backup plan. Cupcake bites, with homemade cream cheese frosting. And sprinkles.
I did mention the sprinkles, right?
Because that's nearly the best part for me.
*ahem* May I take this moment to thank you for putting up with my craziness? Because seriously, you're super. As I tell the boyfriend over and over, I wouldn't date me.
