Aloha,

Let's Tiki is now one year old!  I can't believe how fast the first year has gone. I've had such a great time meeting all the great people in the tiki community and look forward to many more years and many more new friends.

 

Every birthday needs a cake. When I saw these cupcakes I knew right away they would be perfect.  The cake itself has the perfect amount of sweetness.  The dark rum makes a great addition, but isn't too overpowering.  The rum is also perfectly balanced with the vanilla.

I used coruba rum for the cake and the glaze. Coruba is becoming my new favorite dark rum.  I had used Meyers for years, but Coruba isn't quite as harsh as Meyers.  It has more of a molasses flavor that is very enjoyable.  When cooking with wine I was always taught to use a wine that you would drink. The same holds true when cooking with rum.  A good rum will make your recipe so much better.

The cake is then complemented nicely with the freshly whipped cream frosting.  The pineapple and the cream is genius.  I just couldn't stop eating these cupcakes, and I'm normally not a big cake eater.

So make up a batch of these cupcakes for your next party.  They will be a hit!  For the complete recipe visit http://annies-eats.net.

Mahalo!
