Oh dear... I really don't need these, but today is a very special day.
Today is my youngest daughter's birthday. She's a true chocolate lover, so these triple chocolate whammy cupcakes were right up her alley!
Here's the first part of the Triple Chocolate Whammy - the German Chocolate cupcake batter recipe is from Rose's Heavenly Cakes (man are they good).
Part 2 - I used a squirt bottle to fill the cupcakes with chocolate ganache syrup...
Lots of ganache syrup.
But that wasn't quite enough chocolate... so I used an Ateco 808 tip and piped on a kid friendly dose of Chocolate-Egg White Buttercream, also from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. Let's just say these were a huge hit in the classroom.
A couple helpful observations...
Next time I'll use only the paper liners, or only the foil liners, but using both as the recipe suggested results in a kind of slippery accident waiting to happen when placed inside a cupcake carrier.
Also, the recipe suggested spraying the paper liners with Baker's Joy, but that seemed far too messy, fussy, and prone to oil blobs on the paper liners so I skipped the step entirely and I'm happy to report the paper liners pulled way from the cupcakes just fine.
Happy Fall everyone, and Happy Birthday Little One.
