Cupcakes for all occasions

Cupcakes are a great way to prepare a delicious dessert to celebrate many different occasions (or make just because). They're easier to serve to a large group of people than cake, since they're already single serving, and can be individualized, adding a little something extra. Here are our four favourite cupcake recipes.
