Purple Yam Cakes
My "Ube" Cupcake - Last night I was in the baking mode so I "tried" making some ube cupcakes (ube is a name for purple yam . . . almost similar to taro). Although I had all the ingredients to make them from scratch I decided that I would try to "doctor" a box white cake instead. I used McCormick's Ube Flavoring along with the frozen grated ube. I also used Betty Crocker's cream cheese frosting and added red/blue food coloring to get the "right color purple". Beautiful, aren't they?
