I was in heaven last night….and no it was not because of my husband. The cupcakes that I baked were divine!! Berry filled chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate ganache frosting and topped with a perfectly sliced strawberry. My house smelled of cocoa and brown sugar….what a more delicious way to end an evening. My husband asked if they were all going to school. I said, no but I am sharing a few. I shared the cupcakes with 4 friends and one gave me a compliment on how the berries just jumped out as you bit into the cupcake. She said that is what made it different and delicious. We came up with other types of toppings…melted White Chocolate with strawberries, Dark Chocolate with Peppermint Bark shavings (for Christmas) and many more than right now if I do think of them I will have to bake more….haha. Oh the possibilities….YUMMY!!!
This week I have several that I would like to try, Chai Cupcakes, Chocolate Pumpkin and maybe a Red Velvet Cupcake. This is becoming really fun and so therapeutic. My husband even found a warehouse that sells restaurant equipment and baking tools! What a guy looking out for his wife! He just wants more cupcakes….haha.
Well, here is a picture of my creation. Now please keep in mind that these are not my recipes, but recipes that are coming from books and websites.
PS: This cupcake is “All about the cake in a cup!”
