Iron Cupcake Bake Off Challenge Results!

Packed full of fun, this month the Iron Cupcake SF Challenge had seventeen bakers. The range of minis was broad with Maple Bacon, Mexican Chocolate Cake, and even a couple tasty vegan options – Lavender with Lemonzest and Chocolate Peppermint with Eggnog.

The FingerSweets mini, Mallow Chocolate Graham, was wiped clean however this upscale s’mores cupcake was unable to move up the ranks with such other great delights competing side by side.
We’ll see what develops in January with the unique theme of White.
Any ideas what kind of white cupcake you would make?

Iron Cupcake SF Challenge!

It’s the last Iron Cupcake SF Challenge of the year and it’s a Bake Off.  Now is the time to bring out our best, our signature cupcakes or in FingerSweets’ case a first place favorite.

Mallow Chocolate Graham (a.k.a S’mores)!
This cupcake was a favorite amongst the attendees of the Iron Cupcake Challenge last February and was the most popular mini for many months throughout the year. 

This upscale version of the campfire treat brings together a graham cracker cake, thick chocolate ganache filling and thin layer on top, finished with a homemade marshmallow frosting, and torched to get that toasted yummy taste.

Will the Mallow Chocolate Graham be a winner in the Bake Off…stay tuned!
