Iron Cupcake SF Challenge!

Trick or Treat!
Let’s have something sweet to eat…CUPCAKES!

Candy inspired cupcakes!  FingerSweets is bringing the all time favorite candy Almond Joy into the world of cupcakes. Tonight’s mini entry is Chocolate Coconut Almond.

The candy challenge could have gone one of two ways, using candy as an ingredient OR using the candy as inspiration to create it as cupcake.  I opted for the later and came up with a chocolate coconut cake with that signature, sticky, yummy coconut filling as the center, topped with a smooth chocolate ganache and sprinkled with toasted crushed almonds.

Let’s see how this cupcake will be received and compared to the Almond Joy candy.
Stay tuned for the results!
