Just incase you didn’t know, the holidays are definitely not the right time to try to get in shape for the beach… But it was worth every bite. It was so great to see my brother, who lives in NYC now, and my cousins who I haven’t seen in years. We had a brunch with my dad’s side of the family on Christmas Eve and dinner with my mom’s side of the family on Christmas Day. Lucky for me, my mom is a great cook so I got to sit back and relax for most of it, except I couldn’t stop myself from making these amazing cupcakes for dessert. Sorry for posting two cupcake recipes in a row, but I had to share these before your New Years healthy eating kicked in! =)
I came across this cupcake recipe on Annie’s Eats a week or so ago and knew that I had to make it for my family for Christmas. These cupcakes are unreal. The sweet potato adds so much extra flavor to the cupcake and the frosting is one-of-a-kind. I wasn’t sure what it would be like, but when I tasted it I was instantly hooked; it honestly had the exact texture and flavor as roasted marshmallows! I think that these are my new favorite cupcakes.
