I present, Iron Cupcake: Coffee

There are certain steps that I take each and every morning after being woken up by one of my sous chefs. Fix one a severly watered down juice and the other some milk, let the dog out, and make coffee for the hubby and myself. When the challenge was announced, you can bet your butt I was excited. A good cup of coffee is always accepted around here.

I am not too much of a fancy coffee drinker. Don't get me wrong, my oldest knows the starbucks logo. I just usually stick to regular coffee or my current fav: Cinnamon Dolce Latte. Did you know that if you have a starbucks gift card and you register it with them most of the syrups are free and you also get free refills of regular coffee?? Also, 2 hours of internet a day?? Seriously, I am going off on a major tanget here. Okay, back to the cupcakes.

I decided to make something that would remind me of a vanilla latte. To keep it light, I just used egg whites and for the coffee kick I added instant espresso. To top it off, a wonderful whipped cream frosting.

I'll include the recipe in a later post. Right now I need to get this thing sent off or else I won't be eligible...way to wait until the last minute!

You can vote for my cupcake and check out the other amazing Iron Cupcake bakers HERE from March 1st to March 6th. What would I win?

Good luck! The Iron Cupcake competition is intense isn't it? So far, I've been too intimidated to enter (that and I know if I make cupcakes I would eat them!)
