|Debb's Italian Cream Cake Cupcake|
Well, I decided to dust it off today to make for our Italian themed potluck at church tomorrow. Layer cakes are so hard to cut and serve well at potlucks, so I decided to make a cupcake form. Ok, I just like to turn things into cupcakes....isn't that why read this blog?
I did make a couple tweaks to the original recipe. First, I substituted almond extract for amaretto (we live in a dry county and I didn't want to make a road trip to buy it, but the amaretto is really worth and adds just a little more flavor punch). I also left pecans out of the frosting and sprinkled them on top so that I could pipe the frosting.
They turned out amazing and while I wouldn't call this a quick, easy recipe, it was totally worth the effort and I hope the 36 people who get one tomorrow enjoy them.
