Ready, Set, Cook! Reynolds Wrap Contest Entry. I've been wanting to make a zucchini dessert that is unlike the rest. I had trouble thinking of what to add to a zucchini dessert dish that would make it unique. It was actually your contest that gave me the "epiphany" I needed. The second I read the ingredients I knew exactly what I thought would go together perfectly & that was unlike any other zucchini dessert out there. I made these cupcakes for my family & friends & they LOVED them! Several of them told me it's the best dessert they've ever had, another commented that if I ever open up a bakery this could be the star on my menu. The smell alone is so inviting that it's hard to wait for the cupcakes to cool & frost them before biting into them. But once you try them complete with the frosting & garnished w more almonds, you see that it's a match made in heaven!
