    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    A great way to use up some of that zucchini! It is basically a spice cake with zucchini hidden in it. The icing is wonderful and the cupcakes are very moist. Kids & adults alike love them.

      Mmmm! I love this recipe! My kids were eating the cupcakes without frosting and loving it. However, the frosting makes the cupcake all the better. Although I did have a teenage daughter who scraped off the frosting because it was too sweet for her. The rest of us adored it! Thanks for the yummy way to use my zuch!

      These cupcakes are so scrumptious! I did change a few minor things: used 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom, and used 1/4 cup vegetable oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. I'm sure my cupcakes would have turned out incredibly moist if I'd made them with all the oil called for, but they were just fine as is. That icing is to die for! My hubby had to pull the pan out of my hands after I was done frosting the cupcakes, because I kept eating what was left over! So good, thank you!
