Zucchini Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Zucchini cupcakes???.....YES, and they taste SUPERB! I think its the frosting that makes them a cupcake instead of a muffin, but YOU could serve these for breakfast and you wouldn't get any complaints! I love that I can sneak in a little veggie with dessert, it just does my little "mommy" heart good! You have to taste these to appreciate them, they don't taste as ordinary as they look, trust me!
