cinnamon & honey frosted banana cupcakes

Few bananas that are sitting inside the fruit bowls are rotting away. I thought of banana bread but I do not want to bore the crew with it. So I thought of muffins and for some reason I googled cupcake instead. Thanks to google and fellow food bloggers archive, that I do not need to…
