This is a chocolate cupcake dipped in a chocolate ganache that has been infused with salted peanuts, then I crushed sugar cones and sprinkled them on top of the ganache to mimic the taco shell, a swirl of vanilla buttercream then a fudge drizzle . My oldest loved it, and said it tasted just like the ice cream bar, without the brain freeze....brrrr!
This cupcake was pure delicioso! It covered so many yummy bases, sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy!mmmm.....
As the ideas came, I kept my pretty pink Kitcheaid spinning and my cupcake pans full.
I wanted to make a banana split cupcake but I wanted to add a different touch, so I came up with a Nuevo Banana Split
this is a banana cake topped with strawberry buttercream that is infused with real chunks of strawberries, over the buttercream is a sprinkle of sweet coconut and walnuts, then the cupcake is drizzled with warm dulce de leche and a rich chocolate drizzle and a plump maraschino cherry.
