This recipe, adapted from marthastewart.com, is called Halloween cupcakes. Martha’s cupcakes were frosted with vanilla frosting and decorated with orange and black jelly beans. I scooped out the tops of my cupcakes and spooned in some strawberry jam, replaced the tops, then iced them with white chocolate cream cheese frosting. A sprinkling of toasted sliced almonds finished them off. Everyone loved them. The cupcakes, though very good, were not as good as my all-time favorite, Southern Living's vanilla cupcakes. I’ve never found a recipe to top it.
You'll get an even dozen cupcakes, and they freeze beautifully. You can frost these with orange-tinted icing for Halloween, red and green icing for Christmas, or any one of a gazillion ways for whatever holiday or season is at hand.
