Florentine Cupcakes

That was my first experience of cupcakes cooking. Before that I have never cooked cupcakes, because wherever I tasted them - I didn't like it, but then I was inspired by amazing magazine which I had bought on Malta, with a lot of recipes of cupcakes. So, I couldn't stay indifferent...so, that was the beggining of my love story with cupcakes!
