Grilled Strawberry Short Cupcake

Monday, I competed in the Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee Tailgate Challenge. We were given the task of coming up with a cupcake that represents tailgating to you. Here is my submission:

Grilled Strawberry Short Cupcake
Grilled Sponge Cake
Dipped in Strawberry Syrup
Topped with Whipped Cream
Garnished with Fresh Strawberries and Mint

Since I just took my older daughter back to the University of Wisconsin: Madison, my presentation was all about Badgers. I love that you can see the arch of the Hoan Bridge behind us! It's a Milwaukee landmark that leads you to the neighborhood I grew up in so, I thought it was really fitting:-)



I didn't win but with a view like this, I didn't mind at all:

Can you make those next time I come over- they look and sound mouthwatering indeed. Don't forget I have a birthday coming up and those cupcakes would hit the spot;);).

I grilled lemon pound cake for the first time last week. Topped it with strawberry ice cream and fresh strawberries. Your cupcakes look great.
Happy Weekend
