    Ashton! AMAZING round up! I’m salivating. I need to bake cupcakes this weekend for a party. And I haven’t found much inspiration. Your timing could NOT be more perfect. LOVE THIS! And you. :)

    Thank you for including mine. SO SWEET!

    I’m not a big “cake” fan but this collection had made me crave chocolate cupcakes for weeks.

    Can’t go wrong with a chocolate cupcake round-up! Thanks for including my cookies and cream cupcakes–but I’m chuckling because this was one of my first posts back when my pictures were absolutely cringe-worthy. Yikes! :-)

    I just recently had the pleasure of making some delicious chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon cupcakes myself, but I’m disappointed that I didn’t see this beforehand so I could put your ideas to the test! Can’t wait for another opportunity–thanks for sharing.

    is it just me or all the pictures are gone?

    • Ashton posted on February 13, 2013 at 11:38 am (#)

      Yep– they’re gone. My contributor had some issues with her blog, and the pictures were being hosted on her blog. I plan on “repairing” the post at some point in the near future.
