If it's one thing you'd know about me if we were friends in real life (I mean, we are, so), it's that I'm a total sweets person. I need to have some sort of chocolate concotion at least once a day, and I'm not even exaggerating. I absolutely adore sweets.

More specifically - I adore cake - yet sadly, it's usually the last thing that I tend to indulge in because of how crazy glutenous most cake-related desserts tend to be. I think it's why I'm so addicted to these protein bars, because I almost feel like I'm eating my favorite dessert.

Regardless - when there's a will there's a way. And I found the will and the way.

It's in these cupcakes.
