Celebrate the 50th Anniversary CMA Awards

The biggest and brightest night in Country Music will take place on November 2, 2016. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of The CMA Awards.  The show will highlight the past year in country music and pay tribute to a variety of great artists who helped create the country music legacy. Join me and millions of country music fans as they enjoy the show from the comfort of their homes.

Whether you make it a family affair or invite a few of your fellow country music fans over to enjoy the show, make it a party! I’ve gathered several blogger friends of mine to help provide you with special recipes just right for this occasion.

My recipe is one I’ve developed for this event. Inspired by a traditional Southern recipe, Red Carpet Sweet Potato Cupcakes are reminiscent of the old favorite, Hummingbird Cake recipe.  The addition of crushed pineapple to a Martha White® Sweet Potato Muffin Mix makes the cupcakes moist and delicious. For a star finish, top cupcakes with a swirl of brown sugar cream cheese icing!

Enjoy your evening and make it an award worthy night with the help of these delicious recipe suggestions from my blogger friends!
