I have followed the monthly Cupcake Hero challenges for a few months. They have always been awesome, and the recipes and ideas have been intimidating. I haven’t felt up to the challenge. But I think it is time that I submit my creations to the challenges. A bit of info on Cupcake Hero – they offer up a monthly challenge of who can be the most creative and make a tasty cupcake using a certain ingredient. For example last months “secret ingredient” was cocoa. A previous month was limes – the winner was a cherry lime rickey cupcake – YUM!
Onto this months challenge… MELON! Melon is not one of my favourite flavours. I am not a big watermelon eater in the summer. I do enjoy honeydew or cantelope in my fruit salad, but I wouldn’t say that I go out of my way to eat it. So this is going to be quite a challenge for me. Melon. Hmmm…. Any suggestions? Maybe bake a cupcake with a drink recipe? I just made some cosmo cupcakes which were really yummy, so what drinks use melon schnapps or liquor?
Please let me know what you think and what ideas you might have.
