Between preparing for the ice cream takedown on July 8th (seriously, how am I going to fit 2 gallons – 2 GALLONS!!! of ice cream in my freezer?) and deciding that I just had to enter Cupcake Project‘s and Scoopalicious’ 5th annual ice cream cupcake contest; my ice cream maker hasn’t seen this much action since I got it four years ago.
When I started drafting ideas for my ice cream cupcake, I decided to take inspiration from Stef at Cupcake Project, she is known for making incredibly unique cupcakes with ingredients you would never expect to find.
I’m not the biggest liquor drinker in the world, but if I am going to have a cocktail it is going to be a dark and stormy. I thought the combination of a ginger lime ice cream with a rum spiked cupcake would be the perfect interpretation of my favorite cocktail.
