The adventurous blogger Stefani, from the off-the-wall blog 'Cupcake Project,' created these eyebrow-raising Spam Cupcakes. Yes, Spam! And yes, I am talking about the canned luncheon meat. What makes these wacky cakes even more intriguing is that Stefani even made the Spam from scratch. That may sound like an oxymoron, but it's true.
These perplexing cakes are comprised of a homey spice cake batter spiked with pineapple and pieces of homemade Spam. Stefani added a healthy piping of spiced cream cheese frosting topped with a sprinkling of candied Spam, and just like that, Spam Cupcakes were born. Stefani describes the flavor as pleasantly salty-sweet and not scary at all. While it may take a touch of courage to chow down on these strange cakes, it sounds like the flavor richly rewards the brave.
If salty-sweet is the way to your heart, give these Spam Cupcakes a try.
