A Palate for Italy: Lemocello & Nutella Crepe Cupcakes!

As if last weeks Thanksgiving baking madness wasn't enough, 2 chocolate ganache tarts, 2 dozen red velvet cupcakes later, this week I had a 3 dozen cupcake baking order. 

 This particular order called for the flavors of Italy. 

I get so excited when it comes to working with new flavors!

I posted this teaser pic last night on FB & Instagram, seeing if you all could guess what this cupcake was. Ya'll were so close and finally hit the nail on the head. 
You guys know me, I love cocktails & cupcakes!

Let's see what's baking!

 Lemoncello Cupcake
I'm going to have to ask for your ID if you want this cupcake! ;)
A cake spiked with a very popular Italian lemon liqueur with a whole lot of freshly squeezed lemon and grated lemon peel. Filled with lemon curd.
Topped it off with MORE lemoncello disguised as a frosting.

Kind of funny how I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this flavor when normally I am not a big fan of sour or lemon sweets. This one can make a chocolate lover believe!

  Nutella Crepe Cupcake
And then there's one for the chocolate lovers. Nutella is a godsend from Italy. No really. It truly belongs on any dessert! The cake taste very familiar to a freshly made crepe and I added some yogurt to the cake as well, The frosting is just hazel-nutty nutella whip galore. Topped off with a strawberry garnish so you get that delish dessert crepe taste you crave. You can definitely eat this for breakfast.

And then I had to say bye bye to my dulce lovers.

I'm sure they had a great time at their party!

  1. Wow - everything just looks so amazing and for me, lemon is actually one of my favorites, I will basically get anything I see if it is lemon flavored! Don't get me started on those Nutella crepe cupcakes - let's just say those are some very lucky people that will get to enjoy these desserts :)
