As gourmet cupcake shops continue to sprout up across the country, the cupcake craze shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, these pint-sized treats are more popular than ever and are sure to please any summer barbeque crowd. Grilling lends a unique texture to cupcakes that simply can't be achieved by baking them in the oven, and best of all, the technique can be used with virtually any of your favorite recipes.
Whip up a batch of homemade batter, or keep things easy with a boxed cupcake mix. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into a standard cupcake tin, then place it on a cookie sheet for even grilling. To give your desserts a fruity twist, try this recipe, which substitutes an orange peel for the standard paper liner.
