I chose a bunch of my faves from the book and then asked my sister for her input. Finally, we narrowed it down to 3 flavors. The first would be a French Toast Cupcake topped with Maple Buttercream + crumbled Bacon (how 'healthy' does that sound!) The next one we chose to do was a Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcake topped with Chocolate Buttercream (at least the Cinnamon is healthy). And for our third selection, a Lemon Blueberry Cupcake topped with Whipped Cream (I'm thinking this was probably the most healthy of the three).
The French Toast Cupcake was actually my favorite.. the cupcake alone was scrumptious! Then to top it with Maple Buttercream was just amazing.. I didn't actually try the bacon topped ones (I did a few with and without bacon), but I was told they were awesome!
I actually loved the Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcake as well.. who knew this was such a fabulous flavor combo? ..they really go very well together!
The Lemon Blueberry Cupcake was yummy, but turned out gooey and sort of messy to eat, since the blueberry filling I layered with the lemon batter didn't really 'bake'. I'm going to work on this one.. perhaps I put too much filling in with the batter? I definitely want to tweek the recipe because the cupcake itself was delicious.. lemon + blueberry are a tasty pair!
