Okay. There was a LOT of baking this weekend which means I went home because I’m currently staying at an apartment with no flour or anything else to bake with.
We pitted two beautiful looking and delicious sounding cupcakes against one another.
In this corner we have Katherine’s Homemade Snowball
And in the other corner we have Amy’s Mochoconut Cupcakes
Whose cuisine will reign supreme?
(Ha. Stole that last line from the Food Network!)
After consulting the judges, a decision has finally been reached. It was not easy to say the least.
But our winner for Cupcake Hero July [Coconut] is..
AMY’S MOCHOCONUT CUPCAKE!!
:: crowd roaring ::
This cupcake was an amazing blend of flavors. Coffee, almond, chocolate, AND coconut?! Wow. We couldn’t get enough of the icing and the macaroon on top was a very creative way to use coconut and made for a very pretty, but still not overly complicated, cupcake. I think I’ll have requests to make this cupcake again soon. The flavors perfectly balanced one another.
Thanks again everyone for your contributions to this month’s Cupcake Hero!
