It's a personal preference, but I enjoy my cupcakes without icing when topped with fresh or preserved fruit, or with a favorite homemade ice cream.
However, they also taste wonderful when thickly iced with a favorite frosting. I especially liked Mom's chocolate SURPRISE cupcakes, and her orange flavored ones too, with their fluffy jelly meringue topping. Both recipes are given with other Delicious Cupcake Recipes.
Most cupcakes can be beautifully decorated for festive occasions. Be sure to check out the helpful decorating ideas presented in the links above. The flower cupcakes are especially eye catching when creatively displayed on a cupcake stand as an edible bouquet.
I can recall eating Mom's cupcakes decorated with thick chocolate icing at birthdays and decorated with frosting and colorful candy sprinkles at family wedding showers. However, you needed to get first in line because they were quick to disappear!
When you're young, or young at heart, cupcakes are really special. It's like having a tiny cake all to yourself.
