Sweet Saturday: Hummingbird Cupcakes with Marmalade Icing

By

Man, it’s hard to have a sweet Saturday when projects and deadlines loom about me. Luckily, cupcakes exist. Cupcakes are SWEET. Cupcakes are FRILLING.

Today I made Hummingbird Cupcakes with Marmalade Icing. Mmm, Mmm. I got the recipe from 500 Cupcakes, a bakebook Fran gave me years ago. I plan on trying lots of new recipes in the coming weeks. 

The Hummingbird Cake is a delish concoction of orange zest, banana, pineapple, coconut, and carrot. Jealous yet? These turned out absolutely lovely. The cake tasted almost muffin-like (not too sweet), and the icing turned out thin, almost like a glaze. 

What made your Saturday sweet?
