Vanilla is my very fav. It always has been, its also my fav. smell ever. I think its because its so simple!

citygirlcooks said...

I love super moist chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting. YUM!

Meg said...

I am obviously going to go with chocolate. It has to be filled with something gooey and delicious though. Plain cake is not my thing. Frosting is also a must, but I suppose it wouldn't really be a cupcake without it.

I'm a big fan of peanut butter/chocolate combos, I can never turn them down!

Paul said...

I am going to go with one you've made for me .. the green tea cupcakes with macha cream frosting. I still dream about those (hint hint)

Megan said...

I don't think there is anything better than a simply chocolate muffin with buttercream icing...just melts in your mouth! Congrats on 100 posts!

Kelly said...

Sweet giveaway and congrats on making it to 100 posts! My favorite cupcake flavor is vanilla or funfetti (if that's a flavor!) with cream cheese or vanilla frosting. Crossing my fingers to get those cookie cutters :)

Helen said...

mmmmm... red velvet or a really good dark chocolate...
Really??? 100 already whoo-ha!

FIL said...

Pumpkin with sour cream frosting...sugar free.

cookingkatie said...

congrats on 100 posts!! My fave by far is carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

CoCo said...

I love red velvet with cream cheese frosting. I have yet to be able to find a really good recipe that I can make at home but I will keep trying.

Thomas said...

I can't believe you're already at 100. I remember when you first started! I would have to say that my favorite of the ones I've ever eaten was your tiramisu cupcake recipe. Those cuppin' cakes were phenomenal . . . but the best on the second day! But if this is a clever ploy to get an idea for my CCom celebration (wink wink), I'm open to new flavors, too!

Joelen said...

Congratulations on your 100 posts! Great job and I look forward to future posts :) My fave cupcake flavor would have to be red velvet... aside from the rich deep red color, I love the traditional cream cheese frosting it's topped with! Congrats again1

Ellie said...

Congrats on the 100th post!!! What an accomplishment!!! And what a great giveaway!

My fav cupcake flavor has to be banana with cream cheese frosting. I absolutely cannot resist.

Kelsey said...

I am such a cake/cupcake fanatic that choosing just one flavor seems unfair! Above all others, though, is red velvet. I just love the punch from the cake and the amazing tang of the cream cheese frosting.

Congrats on 100 fantastic posts. Keep up the great work!

wachswifey said...

oh just one flavor??? I love chocolate so I would have to say chocolate cupcake with chocolate fudgy frosting. Yum!!!

Nikki said...

Congrats on your 100th post! Thats a great accomplishment :) I would have to say that my fav is spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, but really, I don't discriminate when it comes to cake. Any will do!

Molly Jean said...

Wow! Congrats on 100 posts!

I would have to say vanilla cupcakes are my favorite. I like to think that I'm not *boring*, just classic ;)

Great giveaway!

wifeplzak said...

Alissa said...

congrats on reaching 100!.
Hmm, my cupcake of the moment is a creme brule cupcake, I think. It changes depending on my mood.

Jen said...

I can't really resist any cupcakes, but chocolate with chocolate frosting would be my fav :)

BTW, I made the same marble magnets for favors for our wedding. We put 3 in a little round tin with a ribbon tied around them. Yours are so cute!

h2babe said...

I would say banana cupcakes with Italian buttercream frosting, or cream cheese!

Mrs. G said...

Congrats! Amaretto cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting!

Julie said...

We just made some that I love that are a chocolate cupcake with malt buttercream frosting.

Eva said...

I love chocolate, so a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting would definitely be calling my name!

Coconut cupcakes with (dark?) chocolate frosting!

Shirley said...

Turtle cupcakes!

Shauna said...

It may be plain and simple, but my all time favorite cupcake flavor is yellow cake with chocolate frosting! I cannot resist it!

Casandra said...

I can't figure out the fabric cupcake, so you'll have to tell me/show me-I'm a visual learner.

But real cupcakes, I'd go with a rich chocolate with raspberry filling and a raspberry cream frosting. Chocolate + raspberry = mmm mmm
