Have I mentioned how much I love doing the eye candy? This week, the eye candy qualifies as actual candy (well, sort of). The recipe has “candied” in the name, after all. White Chocolate Cupcakes with Candied Kumquats, featuring a white chocolate & cream cheese frosting.
I am taking these to the office for a birthday celebration for two coworkers. I tasted one of the ones that “fell” (they have egg whites in them), and it was delish but had “fallen souffle” consistency. I’m only taking the ones that didn’t fall, so keep your fingers crossed that they taste as good as they look! I at least can vouch for the frosting and kumquats. Because really, you must make your own candied kumquats soon (recipe is linked from the recipe above). They are easier than you would think and taste oh so yummy.
