Peanut Butter Cupcakes

So you might have guessed from the lack of posts over the last few weeks that I am not in my usual routine. Well if you did, you were right. I am in fact on Holiday! (hurray!) So for the next week or so it might be a bit quiet. However I didn’t want to leave you all in the lurch- so seeing as I am having a break I thought I would share one of my recent cupcake successes to make you all feel a bit better about me being here:
