I made these delicious chocolate muffins forAlexanders 8th birthday. With nougat frosting they became very delicious cupcakes! 

I asked him if he wanted a traditional birthday cake or a cupcake tower. He chose exactly what I hoped for – The cupcake tower 😀 I thougt that it would be funny with a cake that was a bit different that normally.
I also made raspberry-lime cupcakes.

I placed all of the cupcakes in the tower and then decorated them with superhero figures in edible sugarpaper.
We were having a superhero birthday, so I bought a lot of superhero stuff 🙂
