Iron Cupcake: Year One

Posted by on Jun 9, 2010 in Cupcakes | 3 comments

Since it’s been one year of Iron Cupcake I thought I would look back across all of my 11 entries. I already know that my cupcake skills have improved drastically.

This was my first entry: Strawberry and White Chocolate. I came in third. I didn’t have a carrier so I had to ice them when I got to the Barrowboy. The theme was chocolate. They were good and massive!

Last night was Iron Cupcake London XI: Celebration! It has been one year since Iron Cupcake started and this is my 11th entry (there was no competition in May hence only 11 challenges).

It was a great night as usual and there weren’t as many entries as last time but they were all quality cupcakes which sometimes is better than quantity.

I bought these cute little cases from the US so I decided to make popcorn cupcakes for Iron Cupcake XI: Celebration. It’s hard to see the texture of the “popcorn” in the photo but it looks really good in person.

I’d already made the minis so rather than let them go to waste I’m submitting them with a simple decoration. I am really pleased with these popcorn cupcakes. They came out really cute.

The theme for this Iron Cupcake is fruit! I try really hard each time to come up with an original idea or at least an idea I think that no one else will have.

I decided to make watermelon cupcakes this time and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that no one else has the same idea! I decided to make vanilla chocolate chip cupcakes colored pink to represent the inside. To add more flavor I filled them with melon pudding and topped it off with watermelon buttercream.
