Title says it all really...if the cupcake is Mojito flavoured, what frosting would you put on top? icon_biggrin.gif

Depends on the predominant flavor in the cupcake...is it more mint, lime or rum? I'd take the least noticeable flavor from the cupcake and use it for the frosting. So if it's a minty~limey cupcake, I'd do a rum frosting. If it's a minty~rum cupcake, I'd use a lime frosting, etc.

My mojito cupcake is vanilla based cake with rum, lime zest, and very finely chopped fresh mint with a cream cheese lime buttercream.

More testing required...I used a pre-made flavouring for the cupcake that wasn't bad, but tasted more limey than mojitoey (don't know if that's a word!!). Lime cream cheese frosting was delicious though!

That's pretty much what happened with my margarita cupcakes -- tasted more of lime than anything, and I'd even brushed extra tequila on them after they were baked. But the key lime cream cheese frosting was awesome!
