Those look yummy!! Absolutely yummy. I am such a sucker for cream cheese frosting. Your recipe is very similar to what I do...I think the only difference is I use less powdered sugar and a teaspoon of real vanilla.

Seriously I could just live in CC frosting. I'd use it for lotion but that would just be creepy.


I made these yesterday and they were DELICIOUS!!! Ive been following ur blog for a while now but haven't commented on anything but u definitely need to know that u are such an inspiration. :)


I just finished making these cupcakes. They are fantastic! It's 12:25am, and I have already eaten three cupcakes!! The frosting is delicious. I usually don't like cream cheese frosting, but I've converted!

Thanks Verily!!!


I have been thinking about these cupcakes since you posted them...and finally made - no scratch that - ATTEMPTED to make them last night. I. am. not. baker. In the midst of juggling dinner and crying baby and bored children while I was mixing up the ingredients, I neglected to add baking powder. I wanted to cry as I realized my mistake, right after I put them in the oven. However, my fail was not as disasterous as I had imagined it would be. My family and I all thought they were actaully delish, with a unique "cornbreadish" type texture...even the 2 year old who insisted that she "would not like the yummy new bread" decided she did like it after all, and ate several mini muffins. [I also used whole wheat flour which, I think, added to the texture. Anyways, thanks for posting this - it is delicious enough to overcome my horrific baking! ;)


I made these yesterday complete with the cream cheese frosting from heaven. My husband said they maybe were the best thing I've ever baked and there were ZERO left after our guests departed. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! :)


Thanks for the kind words Alice Q. I concur, and therefore, the menu items that were off would not deter my patronage. Thanks for taking the time out to write it! I think spirituality is really important too, we certainly agree on that point. A leader without spirituality is missing a key element.

Your cupcakes are adorable! Do you think the cream cheese frosting is stiff enough to frost a layer cake? Thank you! :)


Ok... I know that I'm super late to the party, but I just found your site (beautiful pics btw) and use the very same recipe for all my cupcakes. I've been trying to figure out how to frost like that. What sized tip do you use? Is this a #9 round or something smaller? I can't seem to figure it out.

I made these and they were so delicious! I didn't want them quite as sweet with the cream cheese frosting so instead I put a lime glaze on top which provided the perfect tang to the zucchini. Mmmm.


ok, so what makes it even funnier is that i translated FOUR cups of sugar to say FLOUR. i thought, wow, how do you make frosting with FLOUR??!!! HAAAAAAA

Going to try this frosting!!! YUM!


Alright, if you say it's the best-I'm giving it a go. I totally trust your baking instinct. And I love how fluffy the frosting is!


Just made your cupcakes with zucchini from my garden for a friend who is recuperating from hip replacement surgery. It was part of a grand afternoon tea (but I chickened out and only used two cups of powdered sugar in the frosting!


What a lovely final photo!

I found this post via Two Peas and am totally stalking your cake plates. AGAIN!!!! OMG, wherever did you find that ONE cupcake stand??!! How darling is that??!!
Ok, I think this cake plate thing is now becoming an obsession with me, and I don't think that's a good thing. Gonna need a support group or intervention soon. ;-)


I just baked these today an they are very good!! I used zucchini from my garden and made the "to die for" cheesecake frosting (which is now a keeper) exactly as the recipe except i added salt to the frosting - just like a pinch to cut the super sweetness. Overall both are keeper recipes!!!

This really was the best frosting ever!! I made it for the filling of some cookies and am posting it on my blog tomorrow. Feel free to check it out!http://bellesbazaar-heather.blogspot.com/2011/10/last-minute-halloween-treats.html
