I'm making cream cheese pound cake cupcakes for a birthday party, and I'm wondering what I should use to frost them. Regular buttercream? Some sort of fun flavored buttercream? A whipped cream frosting topped with piece of fresh fruit? What would you guys do? And if you've got specific frosting recipe in mind, please share or PM me! (I've only ever made plain old buttercream before, so my recipe collection needs some help!)
Pound cakes are often paired with citrus. Why not add a little fruit to the batter and the frosting. It could be lemon, orange, or lime zest and some extract or juice. You could then add a citrus glaze to the warm cupcake. After they cool, add your buttercream or again, add a small amount of matching flavor to the buttercream. If you use all three, be subtle with each. Peaches also work well with pound cake.
