I love experimenting in the kitchen. When it comes to flavour combinations, i have a stack of them that I am just waiting for an opportunity to try them. So when a friend asked me to make some cupcakes, I figured this would be a good opportunity to give the Baklava cupcakes a try.
For these ones, I did a vanilla cupcake base and filled them with a walnut baklava filling. I made the frosting recipe up on the fly, honey and rosewater buttercream.
Overall the flavour was good, however I might try out a few different things next time:
- Less rosewater, a little does go a long way, and in this instance I accidentally spilled some extra into the bowl as I was measuring out the half teaspoon 🙁
- Do a honey vanilla cupcake batter
- Fold through the filling into the batter, rather than do filled cupcakes with it
- Do less frosting. Perhaps do roses (2D) or flat petaled flowers (104) and use pistachio nuts in the centre.
