Poll Time: Which Cupcake Should I Bake First?

In the past 5 weeks, I've lost 8 pounds. Obviously, I lost nearly a stone eating nothing but cupcakes.

Ha! I wish! No, I lost 8 pounds on a steady diet of ice cube run off and large gusts of wind. But dammit, I look good! If you'd like to know why I'm on an all-deprivation-all-the-time diet, just check this out.

Anyway, now that I'm taking a brief hiatus from my diet, it's time for me to get some use out of my birthday present...you remember this mixer, right?


Right. So the thing is, I was planning to make something that my boyfriend would like. After all, he is the one who bought it for me (ladies: get yourself a sugar daddy...it lit'rally is everything it's cracked up to be). 

The thing is, he really likes chocolate and peanut butter. Don't get me wrong, it's a classic combo, but given that I've done it before, I was really hoping to make something different and a little more challenging (i.e., impressive).

I thought about making caramel filled chocolate cupcakes topped with peanut butter icing dipped in chocolate ganache...at least that would be a bit more exciting, right? Something a la this:

I've been dying to make a Snickerdoodle cupcake, though. Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie after all. It's cinnamon and sugar--bananas!!
And then there was this white chocolate raspberry concotion. I mean, don't EVEN get me started...

So I need your help, my lovely readers. Look, I've even built a poll for you!!! It was a LOT of work!!! Tell me what flavor you think I should christen my mixer with. I can't promise you I'll make the one that wins, but I will seriously consider it. And by seriously consider, I mean do whatever I want anyway. Hugs!
