Honey Whiskey Walnut Cupcakes feat. Buzz-Off (MOTU)

Buzz-Off (MOTU) and Honey Whiskey Walnut Cupcakes

Hello!! It has been a while… a long while. There hasn’t been much baking lately but hopefully that will change. For now, I will leave you with these images of my Honey Whiskey Walnut Cupcakes. They were inspired by a Buzz-Off action figure from Masters of the Universe. We got him from a local toy fair.

The stand out feature of this cupcake is the frosting and the drizzle. The whiskey is not overwhelming and pairs well with the honey. The cake is a walnut cupcake sweetened with honey topped with a candied walnut half. If you would like this recipe let us know!
