Yam Cupcakes

Guess what?! My school project is on Food Photography; and I’m working on Yoruba yam delicacies. Here’s the thing- after I made a list of the the meals The Yoruba make with yam, I wanted more… then it struck! The ideas were unleashed! I’m particularly excited about this recipe because it gave me so much when it turned out right. My friend and colleague who first partook of this ate part of the cupcake papers with it… lol… not only because it was so nice, but because I forgot to oil the papers, so the cake wouldn’t come off… hilarious! Anyway, its really lovely- a must try!
