It was a tasty competition tonight at Leland Tea with flavors varying from coffee concoctions such as Pumpkin Spice Latte and Caramel Mocha Chino to lighter specialties such as My Chai and Lady Grey Almond.
Strong in flavor and smooth in taste, FingerSweets’ Espresso Chocolate took 2nd place.

It’s onto Candy for the next Iron Cupcake Challenge.

Popping up this month for the next challenge is your daily fix of caffeine in cupcake form and FingerSweets went with the winning Bergamot Orange Spice last year and is now switching it up entering Espresso Chocolate.

Four test batches and still unsure of perfection this new flavor brings together the compliments of Espresso and Chocolate into one mini delight. An espresso cake with a dark chocolate ganache filling and top layer. A smooth and creamy espresso buttercream frosting. Garnished with ground espresso beans offering a burst of espresso in the initial bite.
