Zuchini Cupcakes - MS Cupcake Club

I was thrilled a few weeks ago when surfing the blogsphere, I found the MS Cupcake Club. This baking group is baking the recipes in Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. The book has so many great recipes. I look forward to baking along with the MS Cupcake Club.

This month's recipe was chosen by Tracey from Tracey's Culinary Adventures. You can find the blogroll of the MS Cupcake Club members here.

The recipe calls for a Cream Cheese frosting. I decided for the healthier version, just a dusting of powdered sugar.



My notes on this recipe: If you have leftover lemon zest, place in a freezer container or a ziplock baggie and freeze for next time.

  4. Love the zest tip as I just recently started doing that and I cannot believe how handy that is...passing the word around is a great idea. Your cupcakes look beautiful and I was wondering what they would look like with the sprinkling of powdered sugar as yours are the first I have seen like that. They look lovely and delicate. Great job!

  8. Leftover zest? I usually just whip up a batch of shortbread cookies! That way it NEVER goes to waste. :)

  14. The zucchini cake was delicious enough on its own, but what discipline you must have to forgo the cream cheese frosting! Lovely baking!
