The world's first Jerk Cupcake

I did it! Finally! I have been playing with the idea of creating a Jerk seasoned cupcake since I went to help a friend with her Jerk Chicken documentary. For too obvious reason I did not want to use a chutney or other sweet ingredient that the wonderful Walkerswood company makes available. I wanted the challenge of using the orginal Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning.

So, while baking the daily cupcake flavors in our cupcake kitchen I glanced at the Jerk sauce bottle and it hit me!! Chocolate and fruity.

The cupcake: chocolate with jerk seasoning mixed inside.
The filling: I cut up some green apples, sprinkled coconut flakes, honey and then mixed in mango jam and put it to bake.

While that all baked I made some Mango buttercream and a yellow fondant flower.
Behold the pics:

The Jerk is the PERFECT spicy and sweet cupcake. I don't personally like spicy foods but I really enjoyed every bite. I can't wait for you all to try it.
