  1. These cupcakes looks awesome, I am so into cupcakes these days which is not great for my weight loss. Peanut butter icing is so something I have to try!!

  2. Who doesnt love cupcakes . Some people prefer to make them instead of cakes especially for kids birthday parties. Thanks for the wonderful recipes for them. They will like the PB and jelly ones. Tho I am just satisfied with a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing on it.

  3. oh wow, this is a new one for me!! I got like 5 big jars of pb and 8 of jam LOL, I’m gonna have to give these a try and see if the girls like them, I know I would lol.
