Cupcakes of the Month!
So... this month I made two new cupcakes from scratch that I've never made before. The pink kitchenaid mixer that I got for a Bridal Shower gift has been sitting unopened in my sun room for two and a half years! I was waiting to take it out until my kitchen was remodeled. I also thought my kitchen would have been done by now. I was wrong. So I marched my stubborn self into the sun room and ripped open the kitchen aid. Wow..I could have used it so many times these past couple years..oh well. So, the first cupcake I jumped into was the Hummingbird Cupcake. It is a southern recipe and called hummingbird because of its sweetness. After all, a hummingbird drinks sweet nectar. It has many ingredients in it, such as bananas, pineapple, cinnamon, pecans and lots of other stuff. I frosted it with a cream cheese frosting and sprinkled chopped pecans on top.
