the garlic bake off !

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.
