Cookin’ with my Boo…

My pal shutterboo came over for dinner tonight.  I made homemade beef and noodles, but the most important thing on the menu was dessert!  Thanks to Boo I have been looking through many new food blogs.  I came across Bakerella and found a recipe for Bourbon Sweet Potato Cupcakes as I was browsing her site.  I had to make them.  After all us Southern women do love our bourbon, right?  I made the pecans for the top first.

Boy were they delicious.  I ate taste tested about 4 or 5 before Boo got here.  Then off to the cupcakes….

They smelled super yummy delicious when they came out of the oven!  It was all we could do to keep out of them before dinner!  After we devoured our dinner we made the icing and glaze for the cupcakes.  That pan below of brown bubbly goodness is the beginning of the bourbon glaze.  Umm, I believe I am making my mouth water, excuse me while I got eat another….

Now for the moment of truth…the TASTE TEST!!  Mmmm, I think this is the best part of baking goodies.  So Boo, what’s the verdict?

  1. Do we get to have these for Thanksgiving or Christmas?

  2. A very inspiring dessert. The cake is moist and not overly sweet. The hint of bourbon in the icing is what makes this goodie so good. The NOM-ness factor in Mel’s kitchen blew my socks off.

    For reals though, I could eat just the pecans dipped in the bourbon icing and call it a day. Yum!!!

  3. This looks so yummy!
