You're looking at my entry to the Iron Cupcake London competition that was held last Tuesday in London Bridge. I thought I was finished with baking competitions, but when I heard about this one, my competitive baking side bubbled up once again and suddenly it was midnight on Sunday and I was turning out this batch of bad boys.

The theme was 'desserts', so I came up with doing a Cinnabon cinnamon roll inspired guy. Basic (but delicious of course) vanilla cake with an ooey, gooey cinnamon and sugar swirl going through. Then frosted with Cinnabon-inspired frosting. I thought it was genius. I was however slightly worried when I got to work and my colleague asked what a cinnamon roll is. So, it may not be a very British dessert, but a delicious one nonetheless.

I didn't place, but no worries. It was a good night with friends and got my blood sugar level way up there. Can't wait for next month's theme: booze.

Thanks for letting me use this photo Dave Shipman. I never thought I'd see my little cupcake in a professional photo shoot!

I loved it! I think it may have been one I voted for but I cant remember now. Getting the cinnamon yummy in the middle was sooooooooooo yummy. Can't wait to see you next months us Americans have to stick together!
