Iron Cupcake Exotic Challenge Results!

Last night’s challenge was a winner! 
Next to Mango Tango and Mango Lassi FingerSweets’ Chocolate Salted Licorice was the only chocolate mini on the table. With very few entries the Chocolate Salted Licorice was placed best among the Bakers and also received the Judge's Choice award presented by Devin McDavid, executive pastry chef of Quince and Cotogna restaurants.

Let’s see what turns up in next month’s alcohol challenge.

Iron Cupcake SF Challenge!

Unique, Different, and Exotic are the name of the game this month for the Iron Cupcake Challenge.

FingerSweets brings the exotic level of creativity to the public on a regular basis and this month it is the Salted Black Licorice at Miette that has taste buds salivating. FingerSweets’ spin on the Salted Black Licorice in cupcake form is Chocolate Salted Licorice.

The Chocolate Salted Licorice mini offers a chocolate licorice cake with a vanilla bean licorice frosting sprinkled with Fluer de Sel and topped with a slice of Panda licorice.

The subtle licorice flavor paired with chocolate and salt is a combination I have never experienced, have you?

Check back for the results.
