Rock You Like a Hurricane Cupcakes

Last week, I competed in the Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee Extreme Cupcake Challenge. Here was my entry:

Rock You Like a Hurricane Cupcakes
They were:


If you can read the signs from my stellar photography, they read:
Rock You Like a Hurricane Cupcakes
Lime Cupcakes with
Passion-fruit Curd Filling
Topped with Rum Brown Sugar Meringue Frosting
Just like the hurricane cocktails they serve in New Orleans. I especially liked the frosting. The brown sugar really brought out the rum flavor; more than regular sugar:-)
The display included a boarded up window with a spinning turn-table (which was the eye of the storm), a fan under some fabric to look like waves and those battery votive candles under cotton to look like lighting. I didn't win but I sure loved creating this extreme weather and flavored cupcakes:-)
Next month...tailgating cupcakes...hmmmm....what to do....what to do?

now that sounds really sweet and tart. I am sure they were good. Have you ever hit hostess cupcakes up for a job as creator?

Have you seen the new TLC show, "DC Cupcake"? Ella Numera Dos and I went down there today. Great cupcakes, but nothing you couldn't do. Hey, there was a line out the door, and they sell theirs for #2.75 each. You should consider going global!
