Gumbo cupcakes from the Cupcake Project are a savory Fat Tuesday treat. When you think of cupcakes, you automatically think of dessert but this recipe transforms this baked good into an entree. The base of the batter is made with a roux, a combination of fat and flour, and spiced with cayenne pepper, cumin, and paprika. Andouille sausage is also added to the batter. Each cupcake is topped with a chicken stock glaze and a grilled shrimp. To bake a batch of these gumbo cupcakes at home, click here.
