Cupcakes for Two

When my boyfriend’s dog had to be put down, I wanted to bake him something to cheer him up. Isn’t it funny how I’m now a health advocate, and try not to bake anymore? Anyways, I looked online for simple recipes, and found the perfect one – Cupcakes for Two. A recipe for two cupcakes! They are delicious though, you have been warned.
