Swirled with frosting, covered in sprinkles, dipped in ganache, or drizzled with chocolate, cupcakes are a one-of-a-kind dessert that is whimsically versatile for any occasion.
They have evolved far and wide from chocolate and vanilla to fulfill almost all of our dessert dreams and fantasies. Fortunately, today is National Magdalena Day, recognized annually on December 15 to commemorate these compact but delicious treats.
