Have you ever seen the t.v. show "Cupcake Wars"? Well, it's evil...in a good way :) Cupcakes are generally a lovely treat, all tasty and sweet goodness wrapped up in a little paper cup. Easy to serve, easy to eat, how could you complain?
Today my boyfriend and I were watching this show and decided cupcakes sounded really good. So the search began. I tried allrecipes.com, one of my favourite food sites, and didn't come up with anything that sounded really good. I then tried googling cupcake recipes and success! I came across this great site called , ironically enough, Cupcake Recipes. They have a large variety of recipes, but one specific one stuck out: white chocolate mud cupcakes.
So we gathered up the ingredients and began baking. Except for one problem, I don't have a kitchen scale and everything in the recipe is measured by weight. Problem? Possibly, but where there's a will, there's a way! We managed to convert everything over to regular measurements and began baking. We melted the chocolate and mixed the batter and found that it was really runny. I was worried, but went with it anyway.
They baked. And we waited. And they were amazing!
Then we made the frosting...well I guess you could call it frosting. Its base was whipped cream, and it really didn't taste that good.
So I guess overall, the cake part was great, but definitely going to have to find a better frosting. And no pictures. They didn't turn out very well :(
