Muffins are NOT ugly cupcakes!

25 Jul

NelleBelles Confections was started in the wonderful world of cupcakes. Since we’ve branched out to cakes, brownies, cookies and pops. But muffins? That’s a new one.

A very popular flavor is the chocolate chip muffin, a sweet and smooth breakfast treat. But according to popular belief, the addition of frosting could turn that chocolate chip muffin into a chocolate chip cupcake. Not so…don’t believe the hype! The batter consistency between the two is significantly different.

Okay, now I sound like a chemist. Bring back the baker we all know and love!

Long story short, instead of making them both to see the difference for yourself, just skip to the good part and get some chocolate chip cupcakes!

A vanilla based cupcake jam-packed with milk chocolate morsels seems to be as good as it gets. Oh, wait: Didn’t you say a cupcake is just a muffin with frosting? Well toss some frosting on that baby! In this case, it’s chocolate frosting. Or is it peanut butter frosting? From the looks of it, it’s both! Betcha your precious muffins can’t do that!

Sink your teeth into this chunk of fantastic-ness and I’m sure you’ll change your mind. Cupcakes are not only different from muffins, I declare they’re downright better! (Disclaimer: I say this as an all-around cupcake enthusiast. I don’t hate muffins; they help make breakfast awesome. I just love cupcakes exponentially more. As you were 😀 )

So to those who’ve asked on several occasions and all who assume and, thereby, don’t feel the need to: no, muffins are NOT ugly cupcakes. Cupcakes are a symbol of beauty all their own. That poignant buttercreme crown says it all.  *sigh* I must sound crazy…

Until next time, have a delicious day!
