Feuerzangenbowle Cupcakes (aka Pots of Evil)
In Munich we have a great Feuerzangenbowle stand at one of the Christmas Markets. It is a tradition that a lot of expats meet up there each Friday during the advent season when the markets are open. I made special POE cupcakes for the opening day today. They were chocolate with cinnamon and cloves and the frosting was Rum Buttercream. They were decorated to look like fire (feuer in German).
I was very pleased that they went very fast and had to really guard the few that were left that were being saved for a few people who had not shown up yet.
For next Friday, I plan to make Ginger cupcakes. But not sure what to do for frosting!!! As our "American" style frosting is too sweet for the Europeans. Not sure what to use that I can still pipe with that has the stiffness and taste, but not as sweet. Any ideas?
