My little Matterhorn snowstorm I got in Zurich accompanying the Swiss cupcake!
It is my Mom's birthday on Tuesday. She was planning on coming down to London today to spend the day at Kew Gardens as a birthday treat. I fobbed her off with excuses of my busy weekend ahead and so she didn't suspect a thing when we turned up to surprise her, cupcakes in hand!
I had decided last night Toblerone cupcakes would go down well since Toblerone is one of my Mom's favourite chocolates, for as long as I can remember she would always receive one from my Dad at birthdays or Christmas' so I thought it would be fun to have a go at turning some into cupcakes.
Frosted into perfect peaks...and ready for decoration
Topped with a mini chunk of Toblerone
and I thought it needed that extra sprinkling just for fun
I based my recipe on this one here, using the Red Deer as my inspiration again! So the actual cucpake was vanilla with chopped up Toblerone baked in to the cake, it was then filled with a Toblerone ganache and topped with Toblerone flavoured swiss meringue buttercream. I'm not the biggest fan of SMBC myself but since they were Toblerone cupcakes after all I thought it couldn't be anything else really! and my mom thought it was delicious so I'm glad they went down well!
There was a bit of a cupcake theme running through the present...can you tell!
