MS:CC Candied Sweet Potato Cupcakes


This months recipe was chosen by by Karen at Karen's Cookies, Cakes & More and she picked a winner. I used a pan with an indentation on the top to hold the marshmallows; my kitchen torch can be a bit fickle at times and I ended up slightly over doing the marshmallows in a few places but they still tasted great. These were more of a muffin than a cupcake but that's OK with me, I may use this recipe for Christmas brunch. Looking forward to next month's recipe, Gingerbread Cupcakes. I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Great idea to use that pan! At least you attempted the topping - I chickened out. They look great - they are perfect as is, more like a muffin I think. Glad you made and enjoyed them! And the "big" cupcakes are awesome - they're beautifully decorated!

Thanks for baking along with me this month. I, too, chickened out on the marshmellow topping. Your cupcake looks fantastic!

Your sweet potato cupcakes look lovely. The pan with the indentation sounds like a great idea! I thought these were delicious.

Creative idea with the pan!

These cupcakes were a huge hit with my friends, they took all of them home before I had a chance to grab two.

Good job and thanks for baking along with us this month! YAY!

Wish I had one of those pans. It was perfect for these.

I always liked my marshmellows a little browner than usual.
