Spiced Kumara Cupcakes

2 cups flour
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 and 1/2 cups cooked and mashed kumara
2 eggs
100 grams butter, melted

First I mixed all the dry ingredients in the blender.
Then I added the other ingredients and mixed well.
Filled the cupcake papers almost to the top and baked at 200C or 390F for 15 minutes.

Peppermint Icing

1 cup sifted icing sugar
1 teaspoon peppermint essence
1 tablespoon soft butter
2 teaspoons boiling water ( or enough to make a good consistency )

Mix all ingredients together, adding the boiling water a little at a time as to not make the icing too runny. Either pipe on to the cooled cupcakes, or use a knife to smear some icing on each cupcake. Leave a while for the icing to set before putting away or serving.
