Sweet November: Candied Yam Cupcakes at Trophy Cupcakes, Seattle

It's the most wonderful time of year.

No, I'm not talking about gathering with your family for Thanksgiving. I'm talking about hovering over the bakery case at Trophy Cupcakes, where they've made their yearly debut of the highly coveted November special, the Candied Yam Cupcake. Featuring moist yam cake with pecans and fall spices, this magical confection is topped with a gooey marshmallow meringue which is browned with a kitchen torch (!). It may be a relatively low-fat treat (well, as cupcakes go) but it doesn't taste a bit virtuous, I promise.

But don't hesitate: like the holidays, treats like this are too good to last, and this one is available for a limited time only: Available Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays in November, and all week prior to Thanksgiving! 
(11/19 - 11/24).

This will be a great lead-up to December, when there will be CakeSpy artwork hanging at Trophy all month long!

Available at Trophy Cupcakes and Party, various locations--find 'em online at trophycupcakes.com.
