Iron Cupcake - October 2013 - Death by Chocolate


This month's Iron Cupcake competition was mental. It was so so busy - there were around 60 judges! There were more bakers than the last couple of months as well, so competition was fierce.

As a vegan, I found this month's theme a little tough! I made beetroot-chocolate cupcakes with a ganache centre, which were upside down on a splat of tempered chocolate.


I was pleased with the actual cake but the ganache set way too hard (for some reason I used a different brand of chocolate to what I had tested...) and of course with the chocolate being dark due to no dairy, it was quite bitter - which isn't to everyone's taste! So I didn't win anything this time but you can't win all the time!

There were some fabulous cakes there though - take a look at the Iron Cupcake page and see for yourself. Next month's theme is about american flavours so I'll have to get my thinking cap on...
