These are some pictures from a test bake I did today. A customer requested I try out taro cupcakes so after scouring all of LA for taro roots, I finally found some. Taro root requires a lot of work to prep it. They are so darn ugly in its natural form. However, like most things, it's the inside that counts.
People get taro and ube confused. So I made a cupcake that uses both.
This is a vanilla bean cupcake with a taro filling topped with ube buttercream.
It kind of tastes like a sweet mochi.
