Gee, I didn't get a birthday cake last March, and I bet you get invited to a lot of pot luck suppers. I am having one and you and your partner are the only invited guests. What time can I expect you?

Very nice!
Rob gets them with a little leftover ganache and icing! I do the same when I level off layers.

I try to stay away from this thread because of people like bakechef, whose baking triggers my drool reflex.

Here is what I came up with at the last minute.

Red velvet truffle cupcakes

Made a divot in the cupcakes



Filled with dark chocolate ganache (the truffle part of the cupcake)


Then frosted with a cream cheese frosting that was mixed with some Swiss meringue buttercream that was left over from the cake I made sunday (stored in freezer). Melted some of the ganache and drizzled over the top.


I'm not using my fancy camera for these, mainly because my phone uploads the pictures instantly to my google account and makes it really easy to post here!

With equal parts of butter, finely ground hazelnuts, flour, a few egg yolks and a little sugar they are somewhat sinful but they go well with a morning's first cup of coffee; and no are more sinful than Frangelico or Amaretto laced coffee.

Grandson just told me he has to take a chocolate cake to school tomorrow for teacher appreciation day. So I had better get busy. :-)

My first from scratch. I wanted to take pics of the inside, but after I cut it there was a frenzy similar to sharks feeding. I was lucky to keep my fingers...
