Yummy Sweet Potato Cupcakes 

The smell of sweet potatoes with cinnamon and brown sugar will grab you when this container is opened. These cupcakes are moist and loaded with sweet potatoes. The frosting is butter cream with a little cream cheese added for more flavor. I did not have any corn candy to use as toppers so I topped the cupcakes with mini flowers I had previously made from frosting and frozen.

Sweet Potato Bread

Yesterday I noticed there was a pack of sweet potatoes in my freezer so I decided to use them to make some bread. Normally, I would have used the sweet potatoes to make cupcakes but then I would want to make frosting to go on top.

I got the recipe from “The Kitchen of Deep South Dish”. I used home baked sweet potatoes which has less sugar rather than canned as the recipe called for.  I also split the batch and put raisins in one of the loaf pans.

The smell is as good as the taste. I looked for a recipe for sweet potato cupcakes for weeks but could not find one I liked. The recipes either lacked spices or butter. So I created my own recipe from 3 different recipes. These have a graham cracker crumb bottom. I could not decide on the frosting. I was trying to decide between marshmallow,vanilla, cinnamon, or maple frosting.

I decided to frost half with butter cream frosting and topped them with a caramel corn candy and sprinkled with cinnamon.

 

I frosted the other half of the cupcakes with maple butter cream frosting and topped them with praline pecan pieces then sprinkled with cinnamon.
