Zucchini Spice Cupcakes

DSC_2086

These have been popular on blogs all over lately, and it was no surprise that they were chosen for the Martha Stewart Cupcake Cupcake Club.  They were very easy to make, and the cream cheese frosting was the perfect topping.  It was a typical mixing of wet and dry ingredients, and reminded me very much of carrot cake.  It had very similar spices, but with zucchini instead of carrot.  I had some zucchini from David’s grandfather’s garden.  They usually give us several bags of it so I can freeze it and save it for baking, which is so convenient.  These were great cupcakes- light and moist, with smooth and creamy cream cheese frosting.  A definite hit!

Tracey chose these cupcakes for the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club.

  14. I didn’t know you could freeze zucchini – do you shred it first?

  19. Yep – another lover of the frosting swirl on the top! I have got to figure out how to do that.🙂 They look great!

  20. Yumm!! I was debating whether to make this the other day or Carrot Cupcakes. I ended up with the latter because I needed to get rid of the carrots we had at home. I also did the swirl on the top! Good job!

  21. Well, I will not be very original, as it’s been said several times. They are perfectly decorated. I have lots of practicing ahead of me, before my piping looks anything like it.
