MSC - Candied Sweet Potato Cupcakes


This month's recipe for the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club was chosen by Karen of Karen's Cookies, Cakes & More.

It's a lovely homage to the classic Thanksgiving dish of yams with a mini-marshmallow topping.

Easy, delicious, maybe a little too sweet for me. The nutmeg and cinnamon combination gives these a carrot muffin flavour. My family enjoyed them. I hope you will too.

  1. Funny you said they tasted like a carrot muffin as one my tasters said it reminded her of carrot cake :) I thought the sweet potato flavor was mild but I still really enjoyed these. Yours look perfect!

  4. Carrot? That's the first time I've heard that.

    Makes me glad I went the chocolate route instead.

  10. I love your toasted marshmallows! I used white sweet potatoes which isn't as sweet as the orange ones. They were a big hit with friends.
