It's been a while since the last Iron Cupcake Challenge as we didn't have one in April which is just as well as I would have had to miss it. I'm so glad it worked out that way as it would have been a shame to miss the fruit challenge. This month was slightly quieter than previous months but the standards were just as good if not better. Everyone was really creative and there was fruit galore. Click here for full details of the event.
I made sticky toffee cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream which contain dates. Everyone kept asking what fruit? I thought I'd go for the subtle approach. Another great baker had the same idea (sticky toffee)- I like to think great bakers think alike :) Check out her blog here. I guessed there would be a lot of berries and citrus fruit and my fellow bakers didn't fail to disappoint.
Here are some photos from the evening

Next month's theme is 'celebration' as Iron Cupcake London is celebrating it's first birthday. Any ideas?
