I'm going to be a part of a competition and would really appreciate advice on some winning combos for flavors in a cupcake.
First I was thinking of doing a chocolate cupcake with caramel or ganache filling and vanilla buttercream, since those are popular flavors that everyone likes, but thought of asking here if anyone has any "prize-winning" combination that could help me wow the crowds.
Sticky toffee with salted caramel buttercream, chocolate chai tea latte, pink champagne, pina colada, coconut key lime, dreamy irish cream(chocolate, espresso, & irish cream), lemon blueberry.
thank you! I liked the lemon blueberry combo.... any other suggestions?
If the main criteria is taste, not appearance, then you may wish to try this version of the Sprinkles Salty Caramel cupcake. It is divine!!!
I made two new cupcakes that got great reviews from my family and friends. One was a vanilla cake with a vanilla mousse filling dipped in a white chocolate ganache and topped with a white chocolate swiss meringue butter cream. This one would also be good with a raspberry filling or even lemon. The second was a chocolate fudge cake filled with a peanut butter mousse dipped in chocolate ganache topped with a peanut butter swiss meringue butter cream with a ganache drizzle.
