Okay so I'm an amateur baker,looking to maybe setting up a small home cake business in the future and I have my own birthday party coming up in just under 4 weeks. I love to be prepared and want to start trying out recipes to get my cakes magical for my party.
One of the flavours that has been chosen is mint choc chip - but I'm not sure how to go about this, currently I have two ideas in mind.
1. A plain chocolate chip cupcake with buttercream flavoured with mint choc chip or just mint lorann oil.
2. Plain cupcake flavoured with mint choc chip lorann oil and the same with the buttercream.
If anyone has previous experience of a GREAT tasting mint choc chip cupcake recipe, please share!
When I do mint chocolate cupcakes, I only put mint in the frosting. A little bit of mint goes a long way and can be way too overpowering if you use too much.
I make a chocolate cupcake, fill it with chocolate fudge and top with mint-flavored buttercream.
I do chocolate chip cake with a cream cheese Andes mint filling, and ganache on top, they taste like a big soft Andes mint.
I do the same as Paperfishies -- a chocolate cupcake with a swirl of green tinted mint buttercream and topped with mini chocolate chips. Taste the buttercream as you go, because it's easy to go from just enough mint flavor to waaaay too much mint flavor by just adding a little extra!
I do a dark chocolate cake with chocolate chips, and a two-toned swirl (half chocolate, half green tinted mint). Like others said, the mint can become overpowering very quickly!
