If you're my Facebook friend (or real life friend, for that matter), you know that my mom and dad have gone into business baking and selling cupcakes at a couple of local farmers' markets (in Indiana, alas, or I would be getting in on that action). Anyway, seeing the gorgeous things they've been turning out has been really inspiring, so I thought I'd make a batch of cupcakes instead of a big cake for this month's cake feature.
While Dan and I were home earlier this month (picking up our puppy!),Wh my mom made some incredible banana cupcakes with peanut butter icing and I really wanted to have about six dozen of them while we were there. I did a little googling around and found that Martha Stewart has a banana cupcake recipe online, and isn't she supposed to be the authority on all things sweet and cute and cupcake-shaped? Dan isn't a big peanut butter fan, so I was thrilled to try out the suggested Honey-Cinnamon Frosting. So very delicious!
I don't have a great many photos of these things because I ate them far too quickly. I also attempted to make my own tulip cupcake cups, but that was only marginally successful. I suggest buying them, if you're into that sort of thing. Oh, also, I didn't change the recipe at all, except to add a little more vanilla extract, so just click on over and use Martha's instructions. They work like a charm.
