"Recipes names are a funny thing. It seems that the first recipe for an Italian Cream Cake actually appears in a Dallas, TX newspaper in the mid 1930’s. Some folks say that an Italian baker living the southern part of the U.S. invented the cake…thus the name. No-one really knows. But then again, I’m not sure I really care. Italian Cream Cakes are one heck of a delicious dessert! If you’ve never come across this cake, then you’re in for a treat! Italian Cream Cupcakes feature pecans and coconut both as garnishes as well as ingredients in the actual cupcake. So these cupcakes actually have a bit of a tropical flavor going on. Oh, and buttermilk is used as the liquid to provide a rich flavor to the cake. Top these bad boys with a maraschino cherry, and you’ve got one delicious dessert! Enjoy!"

Let me set the record straight. I am Italian and this Italian Cream Cupcakes recipe is indeed Italian. The recipe as I remember it was called Italian Cream Cake or Italian Wedding Cake. The only difference that I can see is that the Italian Wedding Cake recipe used 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening. So for all my "paisans" out there go ahead and treat your family to these delicious Italian Cream Cupcakes. The recipe is easy to follow, and there is a video too. Mangia!

These cupcakes look delicious! I have got to try them. :)
