Someone asked me what's the difference between a muffin and a cupcake, I said one has frosting one doesn't ha ha ha. I had a taste for banana nut cupcakes, or muffins if you prefer, so today I searched a recipe and I got lucky. I started with a recipe from the Neely's on Food Network and changed a few things to my liking along the way.

There are two things I'd do differently, bake them an extra 10 minutes because I used jumbo muffin pans and mash the bananas just a little more. I personally like the chunks but one person didn't. To each is own right ;-)

Also, instead of using the basic cream cheese recipe, I added a little flavor and came up with banana cream cheese frosting and so far its a hit with my kids, neighbors and friends. Wala, I have created my own little niche of a recipe for the cupcake muffins and frosting YAY.

Yard Sale / Bake Sale

Today's bake sell went over great with the prospective buyers. The cupcake frosted sugar cookies were a hit. There was even a promise for a repeat order and free advertising from a very pleased customer who purchased 4 cookies.

The cookies sold for $.25 or 4/$1 and the brownie bites, with and without walnuts, and lemon cakes sold for $1 per bag. One lady thought she wanted one bag of lemon cakes and after her first bite, changed her mind and bought 3 bags LOL

It was definitely a fun experience that taught me that having snacks at a yard sale can be profitable not only in terms of money, but advertising too.
