Basil Infused Olive Oil Cupcakes with White Wine

I'd promised Mike awhile ago, okay months ago, that I'd try and start baking something once a week. Let's just say that I haven't stuck to that commitment very well, but when I stumbled upon Cupcake Project's blog this weekend my motivation quickly returned. How could it not with gems like Absinthe Cupcakes, Tomato Cupcakes (prize-winning!), and Basil Infused Olive Oil Cupcakes with White Wine?!


The cupcakes I decided to try first certainly didn't disappoint. The basil flavor didn't shine through as much as I'd hoped, but I think that was just due to the sad and droopy state of my basil. The wine flavor was subtle but nice - it was the olive oil that really was the star of the show, and since I love olive oil I thought they were really tasty!
