Riesling Cupcakes with Pear Mascarpone Frosting (Gluten Free)
If there were desserts competing for the title "chic," we would nominate these cupcakes. We think they'd be a great idea for a wine-lover's birthday or as an engagement party gift. Of course, you could always make them for yourself.
The flavor of this cupcake is hard to place. It's different and unexpected. Once I tell you that it's a Riesling cupcake, it all makes sense. You notice the familiar floral notes and mild sweetness that met you that last time that you sipped a glass of Riesling wine. The Riesling cupcake is finished with a pear mascarpone frosting and heavily dusted with finely chopped walnuts, creating a wine and cheese plate experience.
