I was bursting inside keeping this secret!

    I just checked out your guest post at Robyn's site, and I LOVE your post! Thanks so much for the great, yet simple ideas on how to make the best cupcakes ever! I love ideas like this…and I can't wait to get home to try it out. Thanks also for the tip on using an ice cream scoop for the perfect-sized cupcakes. I've never tried that, and it's a great idea!
