Can't decide what cupcake recipe to use for bridal shower this weekend.

  • 3

My girlfriend is having her bridal shower this weekend and I need to bring mini cupcakes. It's kind of a Sex in the City theme...so i thought mini cupcakes would go great. I know for sure I am making Paula Deen's Red Velvet cake recipe (to die for). I can't decide what other recipe I should try. I picked up Ina Garten's cookbook, and wanted to try one of the recipe:

- Chocolate Cake with peanut butter frosting
- Ina Garten's Coconut Cupcakes
- Sour Cream Chocolate Cupcake (JAC13 posted a recipe on this website)

Any suggestions would be great!

  1. If you already have Red Velvet, I'd stear clear of chocolates. Go for Ina Garten's coconut. If it's a Sex and the City theme, call them Charlotte Cupcakes and call the Red Velvet ones Samantha Cupcakes.
