Muffins with hat

I saw cupcakes first time at the "Sex and the City" and after we get a patisserie in Freiburg, I had to try them. Since this I'm in love with cupcakes, especially with peanut butter cupcakes. I always thought that it's really hard to make homemade cupcakes, but it was so easy that I do still wondering. After trying different frostings, I did found my favourite: Cream Cheese Frosting with vanilla or peanut butter. This frosting is sweet but also creamy, it remains me on ice cream. Today I will present you one of my favourites: chocolate cupcake wit vanilla frosting.
