Yep, you read that right, Tomato Soup Cupcakes. I'm going retro today with these old-school cupcakes. But the tomato soup isn't a gimmick; it's the secret ingredient for tender spiced cupcakes with a little air of mystery.
Speaking of frosting, I decided to go against the cream cheese, chocolate or mascarpone frosting I saw paired with the other tomato soup cupcakes out there. Instead I opted for for a bit of retro frosting I picked up from my best friend's mom. It's a mixture of cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and Cool Whip — no sugar, butter or cream. It was perfect in its "retro-ness" to go with these tomato cupcakes.
Now time to ask you guys, how many of you have had a tomato soup cupcake or a slice of tomato cake? What did you think of it? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.
