Now on to something YUMMY! So Daughter #2 & I have are still taking advantage of Cupcake Sunday. I am still the assistant and she is the Head Baker. She likes to help my husband with dinner and gets so irritated at him when he refers to her as his "Sous Chef". She does not like that at all. Anyway, I'm a little behind on cupcake updates so I have quite a few to tell you about.
First, the Chocolate Truffle Cupcake.
This yummy cupcake doesn't skimp on the chocolate. It is chocolate cake, chocolate truffle ganache filling and whipped, chocolate buttercream. It was pretty good to say the least. Now the ganache filling does require chocolate liqueur, but since she is 9, we always use a non-alcoholic substitute. I know that the alcohol will cook out, but I feel that there is time for cooking with those ingredients later on - when she is all grown up. Her suggestion was to use a tablespoon of coffee instead - worked great. I have said before that I love decorating cakes. I am getting the feeling that I will soon be demoted from that job, as well. I was told I had to use the cupcakes that she decorated in the picture for the blog. Then she said, "well you can put one of your cupcakes in the picture as long as there are two of mine". OK. Can you guess which two she decorated? She is definitely getting better.
Next, Raspberry Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Frosting
Last, White Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes
