Ube Reminds Me of Home (Purple Yam)

I made ube or purple yam fondant cupcakes the other day. I have sweet memories of ube since it is always available mixed in desserts in my country. I think what makes it popular is its attractive color most of all it's sweet simple taste. I thought I did a good job and a pat on the back for braving myself to try something new, something I've never done myself before and that is making ube cupcake. I thought it's interesting to note that of all root crops purple yam has the most amount of protein although it has high content of carbohydrates. It also has amounts of other vitamins & minerals like potassium, magnesium, Vitamin A, niacin and folate.
