Mint Mojito Cupcakes

Mint Mojito cupcakes. A surprisingly fresh tasty and zesty cupcake with a rum kick. 

The cupcakes were frosted with lots of light fresh buttercream and decorated with fresh mint leaves or a vanilla cookie decorated with fondant icing to resemble a lime wedge. 

Before I share how to make these grab yourself a Mojito, well it would be rude not to wouldn’t it!
