Cake Byte: Cupcake Royale Debuts Toasted Candied Yam Cupcakes for November

Image: Cupcake RoyaleSweet, sweet, totally sweet November! Cupcake Royale is bringing in this crisp and cool month with a sweet treat: the Toasted Candied Yam Cupcake!

It's a change: traditionally, they offer a Pumpkin Pie cupcake in November. But times change! As they say on their Facebook page,

Yeah, you've been on top for a long time, Pumpkin Pie, with your delicious pumpkin-y flavor and whipped cream goodness. But that's all about to change, we'd like you to meet Toasted Candied Yam Cupcake! We start with a moist spicy cake and fill it with a cornucopia of tasty ingredients like candied ginger, brown sugar, cinnamon, and of course, roasted and pureed yams. Then we top it with a swirl of light and fluffy cinnamon meringue, torched to a golden perfection. Re-think Thanksgiving; eat a cupcake!

Like, whoa! This cupcake will be available daily (while supplies last, of course) all November long at Cupcake Royale locations (where you can also buy my book, CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life , btw). For directions and more info, visit
