Oh yeah. Vegetable cupcakes.
I bought a juicer (get a juicer, you will love it). The only problem with a juicer is all the castoff material. Whatever was I to do with all the pulp. Answer? Cupcakes.
The pulp was made mostly of carrots (which, as it turns out, even in juice form, I don't like). Also: celery, yellow pepper, peach, apple, and cucumber. The cupcakes were 'different', and people seemed to really enjoy them - some having 2 or even 3 minis!
I made these for a group of folks I know are open to trying new things. The child of the group spit it out immediately - so these aren't for everyone, certainly. :)
The icing was wonderful, IMO. I adored it. Not too sweet, just right. And it complemented the odd vegetable cake nicely.
