Oh mint chocolate how I love you and you work perfectly in cupcake form. It has taken me a few attempts to get the right amount of peppermint into the icing. Not so subtle that you can't work out what the taste is and not so - these were perfect and foolishly I didn't measure!
Really need a decoration that's more mint appropriate. Something green me thinks! Any ideas?
As a request by my colleague, Sophia, I made these dark chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. The vanilla/chocolate balance is just perfect but did I measure and write down the all important figures? Of course not.
My lesson of the day is to write things down! No more guess work and doing things by eye!
