Would you prefer to make your own cupcakes or would you prefer to buy them?

In my country there was actually no way of buying cupcakes anywhere. So when I want to eat them, I make them myself. I have the book Martha Stewart's cupcakes and so far I've made about 15 recipes (I try something new every time). I always calculate how much money one cupcake cost me and it's always about 20-40 cents (euro). A month ago I heard that a cupcake store has opened in my town, and their website is a copy of Sprinkles cupcakes. Well, they charge about 3 euro for one cupcake. I can make 20 cupcakes at home with that money. So I don't buy them, ever. Plus, you never know what quality of the ingredients they use.

i prefer making them myself because it saves me money. i can get a cake mix on sale for 99 cents and a tin of icing for 99 cents too and that is what i use. when my daughters were little, instead of cake, i used to make cupcakes for them and get things such as gummy bears, worms and sprinkles and let them and their friends decorate the cupcakes to their hearts content.
