Key Ingredients:


Cream together the butter and sugars, then beat in the oil, eggs, molasses, vanilla, and sour cream.


Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and ground spices. Then alternate adding the dry ingredients to the wet batter with the milk.


Divide the cupcake batter evenly between the wells of a lined cupcake pan.


Bake the cupcakes at 350ºF for 14-16 minutes, then take them out to cool completely.


Beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy, then add powdered sugar, heavy cream, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon.


Use a large piping bag fitted with an open round tip to pipe the frosting over the cooled cupcakes.


Top each cupcake with a small cutting of rosemary as a cute, wintery garnish. Then enjoy!
