Snickerdoodle Cupcakes



I haven't participated in Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Club for many months, but I wanted to make cupcakes the other day and the choice for this month seemed perfect- Snickerdoodle Cupcakes.

You can find the recipe HERE.

I made 1/4 of the cupcake recipe and ended up with 6 cupcakes. I made 1/2 of the 7 minute frosting recipe and got to use some of the egg whites that have been hanging out in my freezer.
I thought the meringue-like frosting was perfect for these cinnamon-y, but not too sweet cupcakes. My kids loved this combination and so did my husband. I had extra frosting, so I piped it onto a plate in little shapes ( it didn't take long for little fingers to find these little mounds).

You can find these cupcakes all over the internet with lots of different frosting choices- I have seen them with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and different types of buttercream, but I think that the 7 minute frosting compliments them perfectly. Of course, if you don't like meringue or marshmallows, you would probably want to choose a different frosting option.

To see who else made this month's cupcake, go to MS: Cupcake's Club!

They look so cute in those party wrappers...looks like a party all fun and swirly and I love that you piped some extra. You have to be one of the most fun moms around! These were so good...I can't be making them too often or I would over-indulge!

I'm not sure if you could have piped the frosting on more perfectly if you'd tried Mary Ann - gorgeous! Did you use the tip Martha recommended in the book? These were a hit here too, and I completely agree - the 7-minute frosting was the perfect complement to the cupcakes.
