My first cupcake experience was later in my teenage years. Growing up in the southeast hemisphere allowed me to experience different kinds of indulgences and so cupcakes were so foreign to me. Now I am northbound, almost every single bakery around my neighborhood offer an ubiquitous red velvet/chocolate/vanilla variety of this treat. It became excessive.
However, upon finding this, my curiosity for cupcakes reignited. Okay, gotta go! Severe sugar craving strikes again.
