Smith Island Cupcakes

Smith Island Cupcakes, as published in The Washington Post

I’m showing a little Maryland pride this week given how awesome our hometown teams have been doing on the field!  These miniature versions of our state dessert, Smith Island cake, are…amazing.  Vanilla cupcakes, sliced into thin layers, sandwiched together with creamy ganache, and coated in a chocolate glaze.  Yes I’m serious.

Mise en place–all ready to slice, coat, fill, and dip:
