It’s that time of week again! One day to go, then it’s back to the weekend! Last week I did the Gemini Salted Caramel cupcake, so, for my next zodiac-themed sweet, I wanted something dramatic. Which brings us to…LeoΒ (July 23-August 22).

Life can be especially dramatic if you’re a Leo; this is the sign that thrives being the centre of attention. In fact, I call it ‘Limelight Leo’ for this very reason.
People under this sign are super extroverted, confident, and bold, and I guess this makes for a great leader (to a point) since they’re courageous and enthusiastic—always a great inspiration to the team!

Along with Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius, Leo is a ‘fixed sign‘. This means that they stand their ground on issues they believe in. This determination and persistence is obviously great when something needs getting done.
But, this also means they can be stubborn, inflexible; maybe even aggressive when they want to get their point across. This single-minded, opinionated side to them can be hard to work around.

Its element is Fire, so right there you get a sense of how powerful this personality can be. Also, its zodiac symbol is the Lion—talk about king of the jungle! People under this sign are as protective of their loved ones as a lion is of its pride.
One thing about Leos is that, with their confidence, they can be pretty egocentric. This is definitely a characteristic of the Leos I know! If you want to stay on their good side, don’t ignore them.

On to the cupcakes:

With all these Leo traits in mind, you can straight away see why I chose CHILLI CHOCOLATE! It’s dramatic, fiery, and honestly? You either love it or you hate it!

I used this recipe from All Recipes, and it is delicious! Really simple to make, and it doesn’t take too long. Just a note, though: the recipe says the batter needs only a few dropsΒ of milk—I needed so much more than that. But see how it goes.

Stay tuned for the next zodiac cupcake post, ’cause next up is Virgo! Obviously my favourite to do since it’s my star sign!
