I had to tackle this issue sometime... it's one we bakers often avoid as we peddle our delicious lemon cake as people ask 'why not an awesome chocolate cake' The truth is...no body has the recipe for the best chocolate cake ever because unless you make a cake that is just remolded chocolate in a cake shape you're never going to please the die hard chocoholics 100%. Anyone who has made it their life goal to produce a super chocolaty ultra moist cake (i.e. any baker worth their weight in superfine sugar) will agree there is always room for improvement...

|No cupcake was safe...|
...except it would seem if you are turning one year old and then it is quite the opposite.
My niece had her first birthday recently and aside from having almost her entire extended family fly over from Brisbane to help celebrate, was showered with more gifts than she could (literally) climb over. So not wanting to add to the pile (and, dare I say, take any of the joy of spoiling the child away from her grandparents) I baked her a cake instead, well one big cake and 36 little ones. Having consulted with her mum I was informed that Amy was partial to pinks, blues, oranges and purples and having consulted with Amy by choice of which cupcake papers she chose to take from the shelf and chew on, polka dots it was!
