Giant mojito cupcake
This truly was a labour of love for my dearest friend Anya. A couple of months ago her mother [Hi Sheena!] emailed me with the proposition of baking a cake for Anya's birthday, and I leapt on the idea like a wild leaping thing.
This little [giant] baby up here is the result of weeks of conference, days of preparation and curd making and cake testing and modelling chocolate making, but it has all been worth it - what a beauty it is.
A light rum sponge, soaked in a mojito rum syrup, sandwiched together with mint and lime curd, covered in lime cream cheese frosting, with crystallised mint leaves and a 'cupcake wrapper' of milk chocolate. Divine.
