Cinnamon Bun Cupcakes!

By: Christine
I made these cupcakes for a family cookout and they may have become my new favorite cupcake flavor! Before deciding on cinnamon bun cupcakes, I was going through the list of my favorite cupcake flavors and decided that I wanted to try something that I've never made before. With help from my fiancé, I came up with the idea for these cupcakes, and they were delicious! 
The base for this cupcake is vanilla cake batter. Cinnamon and sugar is then added to the vanilla cake batter
While baking the cupcakes, I made the frosting. I used a vanilla buttercream frosting and added cinnamon and sugar to the frosting, just like I had done for the cupcake batter.
After baking and cooling the cupcakes, it was time to frost them!
You can see the tiny speckles of cinnamon throughout the frosting.
I added a tiny teddy graham cracker to some of the cupcakes and sprinkled on a tiny bit more of the cinnamon and sugar mixture to the other cupcakes.
These cupcakes tasted just like a cinnamon bun. The cake was very moist and the frosting was light and fluffy!
  
These cupcake are now in my top 5 for favorite cupcake flavor!
