Can’t Go Wrong with Cupcakes

I always love a good cupcake, as you know.  The other week I made the Barefoot Contessa’s Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing for a friends birthday.  They were pretty decedent.  If you love PB & Chocolate than you will love these.  
And for a variation, I just saw in House Beautiful, her latest cupcake recipe for German Chocolate Cupcakes.  They are the same cupcake as above with a German Chocolate Frosting.  This sounds even better to me as I love coconut.

    These look great. The Barefoot Contessa isn't widely known in Australia, but her name keeps popping up all over the place and I've seen a couple of her cookbooks which look just beautiful. If she's providing cupcake recipes I think she's someone I should get to know better! Meredith xo.
