Cupcake Challenge

The Book: Martha Stewart's Cupcakes: 175 Inspired Ideas for Everyone's Favorite Treat
The Mission: Bake every single cupcake recipe in this cookbook, in order, within a year's time
The Goal: To verify that Martha Stewart can do no wrong.

First up! Martha Stewart's chocolate chip cupcakes. How mine came out:

Deeeelicious. Simple, sweet, cupcake-like. I think an unfrosted version could easily become a breakfast item. The icing was incredibly light (which is a surprising result after you add the 4 1/2 sticks of butter). The frosting is also good on strawberries, which you should have on hand anyway for leftover melted semi sweet chocolate.

I'm not going to post Martha's recipes on AA, for fear that she may start ugly rumors about me via Twitter, but each cupcake will be fairly scrutinized and/or praised. Check back at least once a week!

I've also given myself a challenge to make all the cupcakes. I'm not going in order, however. I'm five down and so far I haven't been disappointed.

Good luck!
