Cathartic Cupcakes

@ Sin Ming Cook House / Bakery / Whateva

It’s been a while since I tried my hand at cupcake making; I got a cook book from a friend of mine many moons ago that contain no less than 500 cupcake recipes (500 cupcakes & muffins – Fergal Connolly).  No I am not going to do a Jules and Julia and cook every darn recipe in the book for the next 500 days; one cupcake/muffin at a time.  I sought on making one of my favorites: Cookies and Cream Cupcakes.. perfect remedy when you’re feel like cleaning out ones fridge of ingredients!
