Hedy Goldsmith Inspired by Rare Rum: A Cupcake Is Born (Recipe)

If you've ever wondered how a recipe is created, here's a chance to get inside the head of one of Miami's sweetest chefs.

Michael's Genuine Food & Drink's executive pastry chef, Hedy Goldsmith, has created a Stormy Seven Fathoms cupcake with coconut lime frosting. The cupcake is an Island holiday in a treat, bringing together rum, spices, the tang of citrus and the sweetness of coconut. Goldsmith says that the cupcakes are "my favorite dark & stormy cocktail...only edible. They're a great vehicle for rum." Seven Fathoms rum, to be exact.
