Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes
I've tried this twice. Both times got rave reviews. Here's some of my observations. The first time, I made the recipe exactly as written. Delish! I easily found inexpensive crystal ginger in the Asian Aisle at my local health food store. I hand chopped the ginger & loved how when eaten you get tiny pieces of ginger "gumdrops" with each bite :-) The 2nd time I made these, my local store did NOT carry butterscotch pudding mix, it was late, I was in a hurry so I grabbed a vanilla. A friend gave me this tip: to expedite things along, just throw the candied ginger in my vitamix for about 15 seconds..that's what I did.So, the 2nd batch came out totally delish again, the vanilla pudding mix really did not make a difference. perhaps if I could taste one made with butterscotch at the same time as the one made with vanilla I would be able to discern something. However, by putting the ginger in the blender, I was disappointed. The cupcakes tasted awesome and the friends I made them for were none the wiser but from now on, my personal preference is to hand chop the ginger. I really missed having those little gummy pieces in several bites. Yum! I just used a cream cheese frosting from this site...thanks for the recipe! Delish!

"Zuccotto" Cupcakes
Ohmygoodness! First of all let me say I was a bit intimidated since several of the previous reviewers were "expert" or "intermediate". But if it was good enuf for Kayla's wedding I was going to give it a shot. The one thing I omitted was nuts;too many friends with allergies. Although many steps, so worth the effort.So, I baked the cupcakes & then after I made the filling hubby licked the beaters & was disappointed;he said it wasn't sweet enough. I was starting to get nervous. But after the cupcakes are filled, then topped with ganache, & then topped with cream cheese white chocolate frosting, believe me! The filling not being overly sweet is a good thing! These are super delish! Thanks so much for sharing...and if an ol' grammy like me can pull it off so can you! By the way, I piped frosting on like Kayla's pic and topped each cake with a fresh raspberry. The "hit" of the party!
