The Cupcake Results
Unfortunately, I didn't win the contest. Melissa got first place, I got second, and Amber got third. However, I won on Taste, Melissa won on creativity, and Amber won on presentation. Melissa got the most overall points though.
Are you ready to hear what the cupcakes were?
I made Waffle Maple Syrup Cupcakes With Maple Syrup Buttercream Frosting. Maybe I lost because they had such a long name. Just kidding.
I made a pancake batter from scratch and put maple syrup in the center of the batter before I stuck them in the oven. They cooked on 350 for about 14-16 minutes. I also made the buttercream frosting from scratch. Since I put the strawberries on at night, they ended up getting red juice on the frosting when the morning came.
Melissa made dark chocolate cupcakes and a light whipped Dulce de Leche frosting
Amber made Chocolate Sundae Cupcakes.
Both of them did an incredible job.
