Butterscotch Spice Cupcakes

I am participating in this year's Capital Cupcake Camp at City Hall. It is a fabulous fundraiser where amateur and professional bakers can enter their cupcakes for a small fee and you can also buy $10 Taster tickets good for 4 cupcakes of your choice. There are catagories that the amateur cupcakes will be competing in: Most Amazingly decorated, Best Filling, Tastiest Twist on a Traditional, Best Vegan and best savoury. You can only bring 24 or one flavour. My aim to make gum paste acorns and oak leaves, but for these samplers I made the acorn from a Kraft caramel. The cake is a brown sugar cinnamon sponge with a buttterscotch filling. The frosting is vanilla meringue buttercream with rum. I was going for something evocative of fall without having apple or maple. Nothing wrong with those flavours mind you.......

I know I already said *amazing* in FB, but I just had to check your blog as well, and here is this delicious looking cupcake again! The meringue rum part sounds original, and very good. Have fun at the cupcake event, sounds like a lot of fun.
