Building a Signature Cupcake

I'm told I have to, or at least need to, have a signature cupcake. Something that represents me and my little endeavor here. Well, today I've been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Trying to make something that I'm not only comfortable with sharing with others, but something that I feel I could have a connection with. I like fruity flavors and lemon is probably my favorite flavor. So I've made some lemon flavored cupcakes. I've topped them with a butter cream frosting with a dash of raspberry flavor added. If I do say so myself they are rather tasty. I didn't over-frost them. The raspberry is a rather powerful flavor and I didn't want it to take anything away from the soft subtle taste of the lemon. The flavors go quite well together. The cupcake is a little dense and holds together well. I think I'll give them about two minutes less time in the oven next time, as a few of them got a little darker around the edges than I would like. All said and done, I think today was at least a three star day. Tomorrow I'll try something new. I must have this 'signature' cupcake decided upon soon. Any and all suggestions are very welcome. This is new to me and I can use all the help I can get.
Until next time ...


  1. This is so exciting - a Chafafa Signature Cupcake. Wow! It sounds like Hollywood or something cool like that. Maybe you could make a few that you like and then have people taste them and see what they think. Like I said, this is so exciting. I look forward to reading your blog every day.

  2. Thank you Adam. I'm thinking seriously of having a sort of 'tasting' party. If you live close enough it would be great if you came, and brought lots of people with you. Preferably hungry ones. Thank you again for your kind words.

  3. So, how is the Chafafas Signature Cupcake coming along?
