Topsy Turvy cupcakes were at the new breakfast/coffee place in town. They looked sooooo good. I was there with my golf bestie, Lori. Yes, we are the crazy ones who golf at 7am in the summer and don't feel like a cheeseburger at 10:30 so we go out for breakfast instead.
The topsy turvy cupcakes look devine!
All chocolatey and cream cheesy. Mmmmmmmmmm.
It's not hard to make either! The list of ingredients looks a little long but it's nothing fancy. The only thing I had to pick up at the grocery store was some cream cheese.
Plus, this recipe easily makes 24 cupcakes. Keep some and give some away!
Make sure you grab your favorite bowl and spoon!
