If you follow my blog, you know the drill for Iron Cupcake where bakers come up with something original using the specified ingredient....I have made two fabulous creations for the January IC:E challenge: Wine.
The first is the UltraViolette Kir Royale Cupcake
A pink champagne cupcake infused with violet, topped with a kir royale buttercream, fresh raspberries and served in a white chocolate cup. This is more than decadent...it's a champagne lovers' sweet dream!
The second is my Drunken Pear Cupcake
A golden Port Cupcake topped with a Caramel Buttercream and Pears Poached in Port infused with cinnamon, orange rind and clove, and then caramelized. Inside is a rich ooey, gooey dark chocolate ganache. Delicious & divine.
