Don’t let the title of these cupcakes throw you off — they are, indeed, tasty cupcakes, not a cupcake shaped potpourri or sachet. The batter is made from vanilla, flour, and all of the traditional cupcake ingredients, with the addition of some ground cardomom. Buying the green cardamom pods whole and grinding them yourself, rather than purchasing the spice already ground, will save you money as well as give the batter an extra kick. The frosting is made from icing sugar, butter and water, with a few teaspoons of rosewater thrown in for good measure. The end result is both tasty and sweet-smelling!
