Iron Cupcake - Coffee

WEEEE!!!! It's the first Iron Cupcake challenge I'm participating in and the ingredient chosen for this month is COFFEE!

This is a worldwide competition where bakers come up with original cupcakes and compete for the fabulous prizes listed at the end of this post.

I came up with a Mocha Cappuccino White Chocolate cupcake. The cupcake is a chocolate mocha cake with a white chocolate espresso ganache filling with a chocolate covered espresso bean in the centre. The cupcake is iced with a Swiss Meringue buttercream with some of the ganache whipped into it and a shot of coffee liqueur for good measure. It's then topped with chocolate "steam" curls.


Here is a cross section showing the ganache centre with the chocolate covered espresso bean:

Voting is open from Sunday, March 1 at 8pm to Friday, March 6, at 12:00 noon.
