I was trying find a cupcake that was indian-y.
They're really not out there.
So, going out on a limb and getting some mixed reviews, I'm putting out my own recipe out there for all to try and let me know how you feel about them.
I enjoyed them as they weren't as sweet as normal cupcake that has say a buttercream frosting,
nor were they savoury (thank goodness!)
The cake base was from Oprah.com, for a traditional honey cake.
Apparently she's tight with the White house cause the chef gave her their recipe.
You can find it here.
As for the frosting I used basic but fool proof cream cheese frosting recipe I found here.
Now, here's where I tweaked it a bit...
For the frosting I added 2 tablespoons of honey.
And about 2 teaspoons of Patek's Vindaloo Curry paste.
Beat it all together until a smooth consistency and all the curry is evenly dispersed.
I used more than the 2 teaspoons of curry paste and would recommend adding it 1/4 teaspoon at at time.
Just until it tastes right to you.
The night of the party I feel that I had added just 1/4 teaspoon too much.
So there it is.
Curried cupcakes, who'd a thunk it?
Just thought I'd also share these butterflies and peacock feather are edible and I ordered them online from
Her shop is called Sugar Robot and she has some gorgeous stuff!
