One of the best things about cupcakes is how diverse they are. From cocktail-inspired cupcakes to cereal-flavored ones, there’s no shortage of creative ideas for making these delicious little sweet treats. You might even say there’s a cupcake out there for everyone. But how can you know which one to try next? Perhaps you should take a little guidance from your star sign! Here are our picks for the best cupcakes for every sign of the zodiac.
1. Marshmallow-Filled S’mores Cupcakes: People born under Aries are adventurous and energetic, so not just any old cupcake will do. This crazy, chocolatey concoction is topped with marshmallow and graham cracker crumbles, making for a truly unique treat that any Aries is sure to love. (via Sally’s Baking Addiction)
2. Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes: Taurus peeps enjoy the finer things in life, and are known to be a tiny bit fussy about their food and drink. That’s no problem, though, when it comes to cupcakes. Strawberry shortcake is sure to please Taurus’ refined palettes with its subtle sweetness and fruit-based flavor. (via Sally’s Baking Addiction)
3. Ultimate Marble Cupcakes: Can’t decide if you want vanilla or chocolate? You must be a Gemini. The twins are notorious for being a bit indecisive, so this delicately swirled chocolate-and-vanilla frosted creation will give you the best of both worlds. (via Sally’s Baking Addiction)
