eye candy friday

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.

    Those kumquats are so beautiful, with the dark edge and transparent center. I never thought I’d say it, considering I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve eaten them, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some!

    Minty, your photographs, and your cupcakes are superior
    to those with the recipe. You are more talented than cake!
    Even I, a notorious food-phobic, could not resist one of these.

    Everywhere I turn I find kumquats – we ran them as part of a special the other day at work, everyone’s talking about them – must buy kumquats. These treats look delicious!
