    Oh my, I’m gaining weight just looking at these. These would be great at a party. I prefer fingerfoods at a party. I like to make Britzels for parties, easy and quick. But these look scrumptious. Gotta have them.

    Hi there. These cupcakes look amazing and I want to make them for Christmas. Is it possible to use a natural sweetener substitution for the sugar? My mother inlaw is diabetic.
    Thank you
