Groom 2.0 wanted chocolate cupcakes for his wedding. I thought the better than sex chocolate cupcakes would be perfect, but Bride 2.0 found them too rich. They both really liked the derby pie cupcakes. However, they had a problem and I had a problem.
What Do Chocolate Cupcakes with Bourbon and Pecan Have to Do with Prince?
The problem that Bride and Groom 2.0 had with the derby pie cupcakes was the name. They aren’t big horse racing fans and their wedding isn’t around Derby time – it’s in 2 weeks! This was an easy problem to solve.
Much like Prince, a name change was in order. The cupcakes formally known as derby pie cupcakes are now known as chocolate cupcakes with bourbon and pecan.
Wedding Cupcake Frosting Must Be Pretty
The frosting on the derby pie cupcakes wasn’t pretty enough for a wedding. I knew I could do better.
I frosted the chocolate bourbon pecan cupcakes using a pecan butter frosting with chocolate and bourbon.
Did the new frosting and new name work for the soon-to-be wed couple? All will be revealed VERY soon. The couple has chosen their wedding cupcakes and I’ll be posting about their selections any day now.
