Iron Cupcake Stone Fruit Challenge Results!

It was an evening of peach, peach and peach. The entries included Brown Butter Peach, Maple Donut Peach, Peaches and Cream, and even Peachy Keen. Interspersed within these peachy minis some branched out with Pluot Almond and Dulce de Tamarindo.

Another non-peachy delight, Apricot Honey Cardamom was still well liked amongst the judges and took 2nd place.
It’s onto Coffee and Tea for the next Iron Cupcake Challenge.

Iron Cupcake SF Challenge!

Dense fog, misty moisture, and low temperatures indicate a San Francisco summer. Step outside the city and blue skies appear, the sun shines and temperatures rise. These are the perfect conditions to enjoy stone fruits.

These pitted fruits are the next challenge ingredient for Iron Cupcake SF and tonight FingerSweets is entering the tried and true flavor, Apricot Honey Cardamom. Let’s see what the cupcake engineers will think of this Marin County Fair award winning mini. 
This summery favorite brings together apricot, honey and cardamom in a cake and cream cheese based frosting. With the addition of an apricot preserve filling and dried apricot decoration these minis have summer written all over them.

Stay tuned for the challenge results!
