Guess who won????
Yesterday I attended the Iron Cupcake- Toronto hosted by Genevieve Griffin from For The Love of Cake. The designer who started the first Iron Cupcake franchise in Canada!
There were 20 entries and the idea behind this Iron cupcake was to bake your item at home and then bring it in for judging. The secret ingredient was............. "chocolate".
I decided to go with the classic chocolate cupcake with something......But what!!! So I tried a peanut butter cup, oh Henry bar and Rolo candies. I brought the cupcakes into work and my "work sisters" determine which was their favourite. There was a lot of going back and forth, however it was decided that I was going to add a Rolo candy to the cupcake. The girls also said to stay true to what I'm used to doing and I wanted something elegant and representative of me. I used my blog as my inspiration and I envisioned a Parisian theme for my cupcake. I showed the sketch to my friend Vanessa and she instantly said "French Kiss" and with that she went on to explain that there were these new Hershey Kisses with caramel and to add that into the cupcake!!! So there you have it, that's how the "FRENCH KISS" cupcake came to be.
My chocolate cupcakes has a Hershey Kiss topped with a whipped cream Butterscotch pudding frosting. (Try saying that a couple times!!!)
Here are photos of the French Kiss......
