Cupcake with white chocolate ganache and marzipan flowers

When I think spring, I think flowers so it wasn’t difficult coming up with this cupcake to enter Spring Funny Cuppy that is hosted by La casserole carrée and Les gourmandises d’Isa.

Also today is my sister-in-law’s birthday so Happy Birthday S! She will be getting this little cupcake 🙂

I used a basic recipe for pound cake (creaming butter and sugar, adding eggs and finally flour) instead of using regular sugar I used palm sugar and instead of using regular flour I used spelt flour. I flavoured the cakes with ground ginger. Will be posting this particular recipe in the coming week. Decoration is – as usual – made of marzipan. The frosting is made of white chocolate ganache. The ratio was supposed to be 1 part whipping cream and 2 parts white chocolate but I sort of missed a chunk of chocolate so I ended up with a ratio of more like 1:1. I had to thoroughly chill the ganache to stick the marzipan in it. Hope I will be able to transport the cupcake to S. without the flowers falling…

    Tarzile – you’re right about the Playmobil. I remember the small flowers and they do resemble the marzipan ones.

    Lifeinrecipes – your comment made me smile 🙂
