Malty-goodness! I put crushed Malteasers into the vanilla sponge mixture as well as on top of the cupcakes – no scrimping 🙂
I also added a bit of malt drink powder to both the sponge and icing to continue the malt flavour, which subtly worked well. Beware of gritty malt drink powder though, no-one likes crunchy cupcake buttercream. I swiftly piped on top (as I was a little short of time on this particular Saturday afternoon) and then sprinkled with more Malteasers….light and delicious!
Next I’m off to get some supplies for a 1st birthday cake – watch this blog-space for the trial run.
