Share Cupcakes!!!!



Sorry Loyal followers! It has been a few days since I posted!I have been thinking of you, if that is any consolation. Well, I have this recipe from a friend called Oatmeal Share Cake. It is delicious! I decided to try this cake in cupcake form. It consists of oatmeal spice cake, the top is smothered in a caramelized coconut and nut frosting, and the sides covered with cream cheese frosting. So Yummy. I made some adorable little teal royal icing flowers to top off these scrumptious sweets! Tell me what you think!

Oatmeal Cake

Ingredients:
•1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
•1 1/3 cups boiling water
•1/2 cup butter, soft
•1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•2 eggs, beaten
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon baking powder
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Make Cake. Combine oats and boiling water, stirring to blend well. Let stand 20 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter; add sugars and beat at medium speed of electric mixer. Add eggs, vanilla, and cooled oatmeal mixture, beating until well blended.
Into a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture, stirring until smooth.
Pour batter into a greased and floured 9-inch baking dish. Bake at 325° for 35 minutes.

While cake is baking, combine topping ingredients in a medium saucepan; mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Spread over hot cake right out of the oven. Turn broiler on; return cake to oven to broil topping for about 4 to 5 minutes. Cool and serve. Serves 9.
