I have been dying to make cupcakes for weeks.  But sometimes you just need a reason.  We are celebrating my dearest friend's birthday tonight which is more than reason enough.  I am an admitted frosting brat and just can't deal with the canned variety.  So for today's cupcakes I decided to make my BFF's epic Peanut Buttercream frosting.  Jealous?  Here's the recipe so you can make your own.
Just imagine, devils food chocolate cake & peanut buttercream, topped with crushed Reeses peanut butter cups or chopped Reese's Pieces.  Have you grabbed your keys yet?  On the way to the store?  I don't blame you.


  1. Oh YUM. I was going to make cookies with the little one this evening, but we may try this instead! I love homemade frosting also, so much better!! xo!

  2. YUM! I (heart) peanut butter. Thanks for the fabric info (earlier post). I'm never satisfied with what I see in fabric stores and I just can't bring myself to pay for the fabric in the high-end decorator stores. $7.50 is do-able in small increments.
