DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat to 350°F.
  • Add mint leaves to hot milk. Let steep for 10-15 minutes. Pour milk through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Press liquid from mint leaves. Discard leaves and allow milk to cool slightly.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter on medium speed until creamy, about 30 seconds. Add sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in lime zest, vanilla and rum.
  • On very low speed, add flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with milk and ending with flour, mixing until just incorporated.
  • Fill cupcake liners half full. Bake until cupcakes spring back when touched, 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and cool completely.
  • In mixer with whisk attachment, whip the cream and sugar on high speed until thick. Add 3 tsp of midori liqueur and mix to combine.
  • Allow cupcakes to cool completely. Using a 1M piping tip, frost cupcakes. Garnish with lime slice and mint leaf.
