Mint chocolate cupcake from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World. The book has wonderful photos, but I think this one is better than in the book, because in the book version the ganache was on top of the frosting, and I think it looks much better this way. The color is just a bit misleading - it makes me think of pistachios, not mint. I might try to make the frosting pink-white striped in the future.

It's a mint chocolate cupcake topped with chocolate ganache and mint frosting. These (not the same batch, but a second one) were a real hit at our combined housewarming/Maija's book's publication party. Maija's very picky little sister devoured three.

Would you mind, possibly, sending me the recipe for this?
And is it vegan? Or regular?

Yep, it's vegan. The recipe can be found from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World, I highly recommend that book!

Ooo, yay.
I'll look for it next time I go to the bookstore. :)

I'm going vegan and trying to find good baking recipes.

Thanks. :-> If it makes you feel any better, I can assure you that most cupcakes I frost aren't nearly this perfect, and even this one would have looked slightly less perfect if viewed from above...

wow! i love the colour of the icing, how did you get such a bright colour from mint? :)

It's food coloring. :-> Peppermint extract is fairly colorless by itself.

Truth be told, I'm far from a pro with icing. But out of 12 cupcakes some turned out nearly perfect. The next time I iced a batch the results weren't as pretty for some reason (beginner's luck?)
