Surprise! Surprise! Guess what? Today I have another amazing zucchini post for you. Okay, maybe a zucchini post isn’t much of a surprise. I promise that this will be my last one. Actually, I can’t make such promises, because there is still zucchini in my garden. But I don’t have any baking plans for it yet. Besides making a few more loaves of zucchini bread. Oh…and that other treat I almost forgot. It looks like you *might* be getting one more.
I love these spicy, delightful cupcakes. I found the recipe a couple of years ago when I was going through my mother’s large collection of Taste of Home magazines. This particular recipe was printed in the August/September 1997 issue. I was glad to see that the recipe is also online.
While I loved the original recipe’s frosting (I made these a couple of years ago too), I couldn’t help but try this salted caramel buttercream from Fearless Homemaker. She posted the recipe the day before I baked these delicious cupcakes and I thought it was fate! They turned out fabulous!
I also have to share this lovely photo that we took for our online business, WireCardHolders.com. I am completely in love with these black spiral picks.
I love decorating cupcakes and I was excited to have a chance to try out some new decorating tips I bought a while ago. Glorious Treats has a great tutorial on frosting cupcakes.
Where are the recipes?! I am not going to post the recipes here, I’ll let you get them from their original sources:
Zucchini Cupcakes from Taste of Home: I only made one adaptation to the cupcake recipe, I used vanilla extract in place of the almond extract.
Salted Caramel Buttercream Frosting from Fearless Homemaker.
