11 cupcakes I loved in 2011

I could probably make this post 111 cupcakes I loved in 2011 and it still would be missing a few; yes, that's how many cupcakes I eat! I may have to do another roundup post of the year in photos, because I attended a few events that yielded hundreds of photos: CupcakeCamp Seattle, Gardiner Cupcake Festival and Cupcake Love-In! For most of the cupcakes below, click on the photo to be taken to the post about it (save where there wasn't a specific post about the cupcake).

I'm looking forward to trying cupcakes in many new places, like Honolulu and Milwaukee and Bermuda this year, but here are a few of my favorites from 2011, in approximate chronological particular order.

And a bonus, because my 2011 recap wouldn't be complete without revisiting the grasshopper cupcake I ate at Cupcake Love-In in Scottsdale, Arizona! It was not my favorite but it was definitely the most memorable cupcake I ate all year.

The Homer Cupcake looks so appealing! Not so much the grasshopper one, I don't think I would ever be able to eat it. Kudos to you for making it through!
