Homemade Ginger Peach Cupcakes

How do you know that you married the right man?

1. He buys you shoes. Expensive, beautiful, kickass shoes.

2. He watches horrible reality shows like Love In The Wild with you. And not so secretly enjoys them even more than you do.

3. He goes to the grocery store at 11pm to buy more butter, for buttercream, because you were not happy with the last 3 batches.

4. He eats the 4 cupcakes that you took tiny test bites out of because you already had 2 popsicles that day and your hips can’t take anymore.

5. He doesn’t make fun of the fact that you pick crumbs out of cupcake liners and pretend like those calories don’t count. Seriously, CRUMBS DON’T COUNT PEOPLE!

These Peach Cupcakes Have A Delicious Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Ok maybe when I say “that you married the right man” I mean “that I married the right man”. I have been working on this flavor of cupcake for quite some time. Ginger Peach Cupcakes are hard y’all. So I was thankful to finally have Jorge home to taste test for me. The cake for these is so light, clean, and wonderfully perfect that every buttercream I tried just over powered it. I tried a peach buttercream, a peach ginger buttercream, and even a bourbon buttercream. They all overpowered the light flavor of the Ginger Peach cake. There was only one thing left to try, Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It’s classic and not half as heavy as traditional buttercream.

You Could Even Turn These Peach Cupcakes Into Coffee Cake

The actual cake for this cupcake is amazing. It has taken me quite some time to get it perfect…but in my opinion, it is. I could totally see adding a crumb to it, baking it in a bundt pan, and calling it a Ginger Peach Coffee Cake. I could also see rolling around naked in it. But then again…I have probably gone too far.
