Vanessa,

I'm flattered that you added me to your top cupcakes! Thank you!

That said, speaking of cream cheese and pepper jelly, Kingdom Come's cupcake is moist dark chocolate cake filled with cream cheese and pepper jelly. It was the first thing I thought of when I read your comment. The thought of your grandma's hot pepper jelly with cream cheese on crackers instantly made my mouth water! I used to beg for cream cheese and jelly sandwiches in my lunch box, when I was a kid, and I still love that combo to this day!

That said, umm..if you ever feel like sharing/blogging her hot pepper jelly recipe, I wouldn't protest ;D

Thanks for noticing my cupcake and thanks for the shout-out! Your cupcake looks amazing, but I must say your sous-chef really steals the show.
