Cupcakes are something of a cliché at this point, aren’t they?  It seems like only yesterday that the idea of cupcakes was a novelty and there weren’t cupcake places on every corner of town. But no matter how many cupcake shops come and go over the years, I know one thing for certain: they can still be incredibly delicious. Especially when you step them up a notch or two with a recipe that will blow your taste buds out of the water.
