Summer to me means ice cream cupcakes – look out next week for the announcement about the 2012 Ice Cream Cupcake Contest. To get the party started, I created this limoncello float cupcake inspired by my limoncello ice cream floats. The limoncello cupcakes have melted vanilla bean ice cream and limoncello right in the batter – making for a very vanilla cupcake with a light, lemon finish. Just before serving, the limoncello cupcakes are drizzled with a limoncello mint syrup and topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The limoncello cupcakes can be a refreshing afternoon treat, a sophisticated end to an adult affair, or your reward for a rough day at work. Dig in!
Limoncello Float Cupcakes Recipe
The limoncello cupcake recipe is an original, but I used the limoncello syrup recipe from A Zest for Life.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a stipend and free Häagen-Dazs® ice cream.
