It's a little late in the month, I know, but it's time for our June Cake Craze.
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.
