Coffee Cupcakes

coffee cupcake 1This dessert have replaced my coffee. The amount of coffee I used to consume was more than too much, the addiction to caffeine was a killer. These cupcakes didn’t give me that strong kick I used to get from a big hot mug of coffee, but it sure pleased my taste buds.

I’m not crazy about decorating the cupcakes I bake, not being lazy, but I like to enjoy the taste of the cake without the interference of other flavors, but when it’s for the kids the Icing and cream is always a must.Β
