Rhubarb Cupcakes - Martha Stewart Cupcake Club

Do you watch Cupcake Wars? My favorite part is seeing all of the flavors of cupcakes, icing and filings the bakers make. Inspired by Cupcake Wars, I decided to make a rhubarb syrup to flavor a cream cheese frosting. I used frozen rhubarb and was concerned they would be too wet. Quite the opposite, they were moist and delicious. The rhubarb cream cheese frosting just added that extra touch of sweetness.



If you have some rhubarb in your freezer and want a delicious cupcake, give this one a try. Lorraine, the PhDcupaker is our host for this month and you can find the recipe on her blog. You'll find the other MSC baker's cupcakes here!

  1. Julie - These look great! I'm glad you were able to find rhubarb and the rhubarb cream cheese frosting sounds tasty. I am also very jealous because I can't watch Cupcake Wars! We aren't subscribing to cable. :-( It might be a good thing though because it sounds like something I would get sucked into!
