We saw cupcakes with cinnamon and applebutter, cupcakes frosted with hummus, cupcakes sprinkled with bacon and cupcakes mixed with mashed potatoes. They were sweet and they were savory and they were quite creative. In the end, there were three that really stood out. The finalists in the national search for the tastiest broccoli cupcake recipe are (in no particular order):
1. Carlene Helble – Broccoli Cupcake with hummus
2. Maiah Aldi – Garden Fairy Cakes
3. Robert Bosley – Apple Cinnamon Broccoli Cupcakes
