I cannot believe it is Thursday already, where did the week go?
It is Thursday isn't it? I'm not sure, I have completely lost track!
It has been another busy week and I'm slightly exhausted not to mention covered head to toe in cake decorating glitter but more on that another time because right now we're talking chocolate...
Glorious, glorious chocolate...
I made a big batch of chocolate cupcakes for the hotels, mini ones and big ones as you will see later. I wanted cupcakes that just scream yummy and I think I succeeded.
All the cupcakes are Devil's Food Cake with either vanilla bean buttercream or milk chocolate vanilla bean buttercream. These cupcakes are drizzled with the most glorious chocolate ganache, I use a mixture of milk and dark chocolate for this, it is silky smooth and scrumptious.
The larger versions are similar, although I sprinkled some with crushed pecans, for added yum.
I'm loving my giant chocolate buttons at the moment.
Before my new contract started I knew I was going to be busy so I thought ahead and started making and stockpiling mini toppers especially for the hotels, I'm so glad I did otherwise I may not have slept at all this month.
I have gone for simple and cute little toppers like...
...which look adorable on a mini cupcake...
...and mini chocolate bars..
I love the mini chocolate bar cupcakes, so freakin' cute!
The chocolate bars are so easy to make, I will try and do a quick tutorial on them soon, they take minutes and I can make about 150 at a time.
These chocolate bars first appeared on my Cakey Perry cupcakes and I have been keeping up an endless supply ever since.
I am so excited about cupcaking for Cakey Perry next week, the chosen designs are among my favourite cupcakes of all time and the Cakey Perry High Tea is surely the foodie event of the year. You must head over to Cakey Perry and check out the utter awesomeness that is occurring.
