Hummingbird Cupcakes

This week I organized all the recipes I ever ripped out of magazines or have collected from various websites.

As I flipped through binders
of recipes, looking for a Mother's Day type of dessert, I came across"HummingbirdCupcakes".

Hummingbird cake is a banana cake, with pineapple, coconut and walnuts in the batter. They were really delicious and all 15 of my taste testers agreed!

The cupcakes are iced with a cream cheese icing and topped with a
dried pineapple slice. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

That is really ridiculous. There are too many ways that marketing has gone too far.
