dSigns of spring have begun to pop up in our yard. Tender little mint leaves have shown up and these cupcakes are the result. Fresh mint is the star of the show in these mini mojito cupcakes. It is the perfectly balanced with lime, is fresh, and not over whelming. A rum butter cake is topped with white chocolate rum buttercream and lime curd. Then, it is all toped with a lime mint sugar and fresh mint leaves.
Store bought mini cruller donuts are used as the base of this easy no-bake strawberry shortcake. Slice some berries and whipped up a light sweetened mascarpone and dessert is ready in 5 minutes. Like the Barefoot Contessa taught us if you don’t have homemade “store bought is fine”.
These cupcakes combine tangy fresh blackberries with rich dark chocolate. Dark chocolate cake is filled with a creamy sweet whipped blackberry mascarpone and topped with rich blackberry dark chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Sprinkle the whole thing with chocolate curls and top with a fresh blackberry.
