For flavour inspiration, the amazing fresh mint ice cream enjoyed at a recent wedding. For practical elements, the pantry stash of dark chocolate plus a bundle of fresh mint left over from a 2-for-1 special - no extracts today. For purpose and theme, friend “P”’s birthday celebration that night.
And ta da, we have a loose culinary interpretation of the famous but mischievous rabbit who snuck into the kitchen garden: a single chocolate fondant bunny amidst moist chocolate cupcakes, each filled with a mint and chocolate ganache and topped with mint cream frosting.
May Beatrix Potter be honoured and both Peters (literary rabbit and real-life birthday guy) feel full and happy!
(Cake: chocolate. Filling and secondary piping: chocolate and fresh mint ganache. Primary piping: cream frosting whipped with fresh mint. Peter cutout: chocolate fondant.)
