For this month's (and my first!) Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Club challenge, Tracey from Tracey's Culinary Adventures chose the Zucchini Spice Cupcakes on page 44.
As usual, I waited until the very last minute to make these, and almost ended up not doing it. I work at a pediatrician's office and it has been CRAZY with flu (type A, which is assumed to be H1N1, aka swine flu). I had been fighting a sore throat and cough and slight fever over the weekend and by the end of the afternoon I was aching all over. So I had asked one of our sweet nurses to run a flu test on me just to check, and thankfully it was negative. I should have taken the night to rest, but instead I was on my feet making last minute cupcakes and apple turnovers for TWD, and dinner for my hubs.
Thankfully, this recipe is super easy to throw together!
I thought that these were great--reminded me a lot of carrot cake. The spice is wonderful for this transition into fall!! And the cream cheese icing? to die for!
Thanks to Tracey for picking a great recipe, and to Betty for letting me into the group!
