This is a ‘real time’ post…today I won the ‘free from’ home home baker category in the National Cupcake Championships! This was my first time entering any kind of baking competition, never mind such a major one. I’m still pinching myself.
Remember way back at the beginning of all this cake stuff, I made some grown up banoffee cupcakes? And do you remember me telling you that they were exceptionally good? Apparently, I didn’t lie!
I entered my original roast banana cupcake recipe, with dulce de leche and dark chocolate buttercream on top, as before. However, this time I used Italian meringue buttercream rather than American, thus making it 1000x better than the prototype. I then dressed them in fine jackets and renamed them ‘Banoffee After Dark’.
