Been a LONG time, Biscoff Cupcakes

Wow it has been a crazy year and I have not baked much lately. I went to work full time outside the home and that did not work out for my family so now I am back home. This means MORE BAKING!!! YAY!!!!

Today the Picky Palate blog posted a recipe for Biscoff Cupcakes. I had never heard of Biscoff before. Turns out that Biscoff is a spread, much the consistency of peanut butter, made up of crushed up cookies. I decided I simply MUST try this. So I did.

I am not sure how often I will make these. The frosting is so extremely sweet it made me gag. The Biscoff was a tad oily and so the frosting with all that oil + the butter was a little greasy, if that makes sense. The cake part was great but again with the oiliness of the Biscoff the bottoms of the cupcake wrappers we a bit oily looking. Also, the cakes seemed to fall a bit while cooling leaving a concave part. This could easily be hidden by the frosting but I can not imagine anyone wanting THAT much of this overly sweet frosting.

Perhaps I did something wrong.

Maybe if there was a different frosting.

Either way I am back in the baking groove and excited about it!!

I did not take pictures because they were not very pretty.

If you love SUPER sweet frosting than this is for you. If you want sweet but not a toothache then you might try substituting a different frosting. Again the cake was GREAT!!
