I made these about a week ago for a party that my roommates had thrown. Although I was not a hostess of the party, I thought I should put something into it. I decided not to help host the party because:
1 - I would bring like 50 friends from the organization that I'm a part of and there would not be enough room. A lot less room
2 - I dont want to pay for the alcohol. Especially because I dont drink.
3 - I dont want to clean the next morning. Basically.
But, I did decide to bake.
I intended only to do half the recipe by just grating one zucchini, but after I grated my one zucchini, it turned out to be 3 cups of zucchini so I decided to do the full recipe since I had all that zucchini. I decided to sub in hazelnuts instead of walnuts since that's basically all I had in the house. In addition, I only made 2/3 of the recipe of the cream cheese and it was PERFECT! I had finished with the frosting after frosting the last cupcake.
These were pretty good. I think everyone enjoyed them. During the party, I think most people were too drunk or too busy playing beer pong to care, but I'm glad that my roommates appreciated it - that's all that really counts. I think they tasted like carrot cake, but not. It was different and I liked it. I love the opportunity to bake and make it all work.

The recipe for this month's Cupcake Club is found on pages 44-45 of Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. Thanks to Tracey from Tracey's Culinary Adventures for choosing this.
