Puerto Rican Dessert-Inspired Mini CupcakesJan 18, 2011

Nicole and her husband Chris treated a bunch of us to a wonderful Puerto Rican meal at their awesome new house on Saturday, and since I'm terrible at selecting housewarming gifts ("Here's a Jonathan Adler vase for your...er...clearly French Rococo-style home!"), I decided to put my free time to good use and bake up a selection of mini cupcakes inspired by various Puerto Rican desserts. I tried to create a balance of tastes, picking out a few tropical fruits as well as caramel, chocolate, cinnamon, and coffee flavors. So after shutting myself in the kitchen for several hours, the final list came down to (clockwise, from left):

Guava with Cream Cheese Frosting

Spiced Dark Chocolate with Coffee-Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

Dulce de Leche (brown sugar cupcakes with dulce de leche buttercream frosting)

Piña Colada (pineapple cupcakes with coconut cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut)

Happy baking!
