Humming Bird Cupcake

Humming bird cupcakes are a popular treats made in the southern states of US. The name sounds very fascinating, so does the taste of the cake. Couldn’t find the exact reason for the name of this cake. I did come across one reason for that name was that the sweet taste of the cake used to attracts humming birds :). This cake is unusual as it starts of with oil in the cake instead of butter but has a cream cheese frosting.. It has a familiar taste, which is a combination of different cakes I have eaten. It is a very nutritious cake with pecans, banana, pineapple and cinnamon. There is truly some magic that happens with every bite making one want to eat more :).. Everyone is sure to enjoy the cake, each bite will make you hum with delight!!!
