Iron Cupcake II

I'm a bit behind on reporting back from this event - possibly since I got a migraine from stuffing my face with cupcakes on the evening, attempting to try each and every one of the 34 entries. I may have learned my lesson for next time, but then again, maybe not.

The theme was around the world, and Dan suggested I do a chai tea latte cupcake. I'm pretty happy with how they came out, considering I told myself I wasn't allowed to obsess over them or even do a test run. I'm thinking next month I need to break away from cinnamon recipes and move on other flavour combos. And I need some serious practice in piping the frosting - it's much harder than you'd think.

So, here's my chai tea latte ditty...



Legendary hamburger cupcake even a vegetarian could love...



Anything with an origami crane gets my vote...



Freaking amazing...



Before the carnage...



You can take a girl out of America and Japan but obviously she'll keep coming back. Perhaps when I'm back in America I'll pine for British inspired cupcakes?

Your entry was terrific - can't wait to see what boozy delights you come up with next month.

It can't have been the cupcakes causing the migraine - everyone knows they're practically a health food.....

Those cupcakes are amazing!
Just an fyi that Chai means 'tea' so it always makes me laugh when people say Chai tea. Kind of like PIN number.

I can't wait till next month either - but will have to learn to pace myself. Nadine, maybe you should start an iron cupcake Hawaii. It could be a way to get to know some fellow cake enthusiasts. And Andrew I'll bear in mind the chai meaning next time I whip out a batch of these tea tea cupcakes!
