The prolific food blogger Stefani from the adventurous food blog Cupcake Project crafted these curious Cucumber Martini Cupcakes. These petite cakes are spiked with an ample amount of vermouth and gin. They are then frosted with Martini Cream Cheese Frosting, which sport even more vermouth and gin.
These well-sauced Cucumber Martini Cupcakes are given a final flourish in the form of a sweet slice of candied cucumber. Although they bear a striking resemblance to a pickle, these sugary and refreshing bites are the perfect garnish for most cocktails and a worthy companion to even the fanciest of cheese plates. Here, the candied cucumbers serve as a classy fascinator to a tipsy cup of cake.
Sweet, refreshing and intoxicating, these Cucumber Martini Cupcakes offer a unique flavor profile you won’t soon forget.
