Lemon Orange Olive Oil Cupcakes

I had my first slice of olive oil cake at a local pop-up dinner a few months ago, and I have seriously been thinking about it ever since! HOW have I never known about olive oil cake before?! At first the name of it kind of grossed me out, but it is seriously the moistest, most delicious cake of all time. I tried my hand at them for the first time last weekend by whipping up these lemon orange olive oil cupcakes as a citrusy twist for Summer, and they were a hit!

My first batch was a bit of a let down because I didn’t use enough olive oil to make it as moist as I would have liked, so the second time around I mixed lemon infused oil and extra virgin olive oil for the perfect combo! Horray for that happy accident, cause it really could have gone either way when I’m in charge, ha!…

Well if there is no other way to get your kid to eat veggies, you can always just draw some on top of macarons, at least that’s my motto when it comes to Jared, anyways. I kid, I kid, he’s actually good at eating vegetables, but that’s about the closest thing I have to caring for something other than cats. Really where this long story is going, is to tell you that I’ve whipped up another #glossaryofmacs with these DIY veggie kabob macarons!

I feel the need to really spell this one out for you, because my tomatoes only sort of look like tomato slices if you squint. I had a tough time getting these right, and I thought for sure tomato slices would be easy peasy! At least the hot pink turnip slices, onions, and cucumbers can redeem me a little…

You may be asking yourself “how in the world is this a unicorn cake, and why would someone make that?”. Well, that’s a great question, and technically I have no idea other than the fact that every time I look at this cake that we created with Monica from Paper Flour Ink (and based off of the amazingly talented Katherine Sabbath‘s designs!), is that it looks like unicorn food. So naturally one should just roll with that, right? To bring it back down to earth a bit I am sharing a classic strawberry cake with coconut buttercream icing to go with, so don’t just me too much! Or do, and I’ll just eat my feeling in unicorn food in the meantime.

But seriously though, who wouldn’t love a cake with a little bit of everything on it? I think if you made one of these bad boy’s and sat it in front of your kid for their next birthday they might actually pass out from excitement (or maybe I was just that kid..). Either way, macarons on top are always a good idea….
