i was asked by north union farmer's market to participate in a garlic bake off at this year's garlic festival. while i am happy to say i took home second place, i don't think this is something i would do again in the future. i don't feel the need to go into too much detail, but i walked away from the experience a little confused about some things and without much confidence in the event. regardles, let's get back to the cupcake! i decided to make a rosemary roasted garlic cupcake with a bittersweet ganache frosting. i am just thrilled to death about these little guys! they were so tasty. i went through quite a few trial runs on these and i never received any negative feedback. people seemed shocked that they could love garlic in a dessert so much. it just goes to show the endless possibilities in baking with savory ingredients.
