Why Camp Fire Cupcakes?

My family absolutely loves camping and it’s an activity I grew up with. We would often spend a few weeks in the summer camping in Ontario Provincial Parks as a kid. Sometimes my grandparents and my aunt and uncle join us and make it an extended family affair.

My favourite part of camping was, and still is, the campfire. Sure. Hiking in the woods down long trails or swimming in a cool fresh water lake is great. Nothing beats sitting by the fire in the dark though and so, for me, the campfire truly speaks summer more than anything else. Which makes these Camp Fire Cupcakes basically the most perfect summer party treat.
