Cakes on a budget

Some cupcakes can be a little pricey so what is a good alternative in replacement of cupcakes? MUFFINS!

A muffin is somewhat like a brother of the cupcake just that it lacks frosting and does not look as pretty as a cupcake. Also, ingredients are added into the batter of a muffin which may be absent in a cupcake. Muffins also have a lower fat content compared to cupcakes which could cause the muffin to turn stale easily.
