BANANA WALNUT CREAM CHEESE

I was thinking of what to do yesterday night, so I thought of why not baking some banana cupcakes? We still have ripe bananas and cream cheese in the fridge so I’m going to transform them into something beautiful and delectable.

Also, it’s my parent’s wedding anniversary perfect delights for two lovebirds!

I run out of piping bags so instead, I used Ziploc. The cream cheese frosting didn’t turn out pretty smooth so I just slathered the frosting and topped it with chopped walnuts. See the photo below.

But I’m really glad that my cupcake turned out moist and not dry as what I’m expecting. The cream cheese that I made, perfectly complemented the cupcake โ€“ not too sweet but you can really taste the banana and walnuts.
