Next week I have another Iron Cupcake challenge in San Francisco and the theme is pepper. I couldn't decide to go with spicy peppers, or regular black pepper. so, I decided to make both! The spicy came out super SPICY but really GOOD, the black pepper came out yummy, but I don't know if you really taste the pepper, and I'm not sure if I want to put in anymore, as it might be overkill. I have a week to tweak the recipes, here are my first attempts! After the competition I'll post the recipes!

mixing in Serrano peppers, Cayenne pepper, vanilla soaked buttermilk, and cinnamon.
