Here are my roommates and me on the football field this time last year:
These latest cupcakes are strange and unusual, somehow simultaneously sweet and savory. Filled with roasted strawberry puree, freshly chopped basil, and balsamic vinegar, the flavors hint at a crisp summery salad as much as a sweet dessert.
These Roasted Strawberry Basil Cupcakes are topped with a Balsamic Swiss Meringue Buttercream and will definitely tease the senses. More than one co-worker expressed the same sentiment: "I can't tell if I'm eating a cupcake or a salad," and every single taster enjoyed my weird creation.
