Q: What do you do with a chocolate mud cupcake that is just a little too crumbly?
A: Mix it with vanilla ice cream, top with peppermint buttercream frosting and enter it into December’s Cupcake Hero contest!
Cupcake Hero is a monthly cupcake baking competition, with a different key ingredient each month. Read about December’s theme here.
I decided to enter this month, however my poor chocolate mudcakes where just too crumbly for me to be happy. So I whipped out some vanilla ice cream and Voila! Chocolate and ice cream and peppermint and buttercream, er, cupcakes!
1. Take cool cupcakes and crumble into pieces. Mix the pieces with soft (but not too soft) vanilla ice cream.
2. Spoon ice cream mix into ramekins or small bowls.
3. Make buttercream frosting with a dash of peppermint essence and a tiny dash of green food colouring.
4. Pipe frosting onto the top of your “cupcake” and eat with a spoon!
