I competed in a cupcake competition at the Everything Food Conference in Salt Lake City with fellow blogger Jessica from JessicaGavin.com. Our team was called Bake-A-Saurus and our cupcake of choice was a chocolate hazelnut crunch cupcake with nutella buttercream. Oh lawd!
The picture you see here is one of my practice batches. I’m happy to say that the cupcakes we produced in the competition were just as pretty.
Our cupcake was inspired by Ferrero Rocher chocolates. We filled them with chocolate ganache and crushed hazelnuts for texture. Those little round balls you see on top are chocolate covered cereal crisps. Crunch!
