I came up with a great idea for a new cake and frosting combination, and my oldest daughter's school also happened to be having parent-teacher conferences. In my pre-kid life, I was a teacher myself, and so I know the long hours put in by the hard-working teachers at parent teacher conference time. So, I made up a batch of these cupcakes and took them to the teachers to test for me. These are brown sugar and spice cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting and a bit of fresh nutmeg grated on top. They're sweet and just a bit spicy, with the tangy cream cheese and hint of maple flavor. It was definitely a good combination!
