I've always wanted to do a Mardi Gras cupcake but over the years I forget by the chance Fat Tuesday rolls around.
NOT THIS YEAR!
I took a King Cake recipe and basically made my own cupcake. This is a vanilla / cinnamon based cupcake with a vanilla / cinnamon buttercream.
The cupcake is filled with a pecan, brown sugar, raisin and chocolate chip crumble mix. I couldn't resist the chocolate chips.
The top of the cake is dusted with disco dust and sugar sprinkles in yellow, green and purple. I had another little decoration to add to the top but alas, as someone once said "Ur such a klutz ;)" I dropped the wax paper with the chocolate masks on it....sighs. Oh well. Maybe next year?? :D
