You might have noticed by now that Icing Sugar is all new and shiny! I am still playing around with a few minor adjustment but overall my new site is up and running and I hope you will enjoy it here 🙂
I was thinking of what should be the first real post on my new Icing Sugar site and I came up with an update of my Cucumber and Lime Cupcakes. It was my most popular post in 2013 and looking back on this recipe I promised you that I want to improve it as I thought that it could be even better. And here it is now.
This new version is so much more refined as the old one. I made a much smoother cucumber purée full of flavor and I also adapted the frosting. I used to have a buttercream frosting which was just really sweet mostly. This time I made a mascarpone frosting which adds both a creamy and fresh component to the cupcakes. I really like the new version of this popular cupcake which is now so much more sophisticated. And if you feel even more fancy try these Candied Cucumbers as decoration and topping for the cupcakes.
I really hope that you will like my new recipe as well and please don’t get scared of the longer recipe. The new steps really are worth it to enhance the flavors in this cupcake. It is fresh and juice and just perfect for Spring time! Enjoy 🙂
