BANANA CUPCAKES WITH CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING


I prefer my cream cheese frosted cupcakes in mini size. The perfect cake vs. frosting proportion, you know.

To reach the same proportion, using a bigger cupcake, the size of the whole thing gets quite monstrous. Gooey fingers, widely opened jaws, but still, frosting on the nose. Not a very pretty thing to eat.

The lil’ ones are more adorable too, in their handy bite-size kind of way.

Plus, those you can eat more than just one.
