[We continue to update the “Top 10″ series of posts with cupcakes!]

Cupcakes have taken on a life of their own over the last five years or so. Chic little shops have popped up everywhere, there are numerous TV shows based on the handheld confections, and the flavor combinations seem endless. Aside from one cupcake shop (Baked & Wired in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC), I have yet to be blown away by any cupcake from any of those chic little shops. Most times I find the cupcakes to be rather dry and the frosting just okay.

As a result, I revel in making cupcakes at home. All kinds of cupcakes – chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin, red velvet, boozy – it’s all fair game. Below is an updated list of my 10 favorite cupcake recipes…¬†Enjoy!
