A week ago I tried to make Boston Cream Cupcakes for the very first time. Now for those of you who don’t know what a Boston Cream Cupcake is, let me explain. They are vanilla sponge cupcakes filled with homemade vanilla custard, which are then smothered in rich chocolate icing. Sound good? You’re nodding yes right now, aren’t you?
I’m always trying out new cupcakes recipes, for vanilla and chocolate cupcakes specifically – I have made some really nice ones in the past and some that are so so. Yesterday we had the Durrants over for lunch, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out the recipe below, plus I woke up in the morning feeling like cupcakes – Are you surprised? No, neither am I. I also wanted to mention that I have added a new category to the left of my blog called My Recipes, which includes all the recipes I have tried out by myself that I have found online, in books and from friends.
I’m always collecting recipes for new baked goods, I hardly ever get around to most of them because this thing called time is sometimes scarce, but I still like collecting them because one day I feel like I will make some of them, especially the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hi-Hat Cupcakes directly below – damn they’re like evil fat devils calling out me, I know I should look away, but I can’t.
All recipe links are below the respective photos. Happy looking and if you’re baking, then happy baking too.
Chocolate chip cookie peanut butter s’mores (…with the easiest vanilla bean marshmallows)
I have only just discovered this blog and I’m so super flipping happy I did. By the looks of it this woman can cook like a mother-fer and she’s not bad with a camera either. I have spent the last hour on her blog clicking through stuff, literally talking to myself while I stare at my screen wishing I was in a pair of fat pants in this woman’s kitchen taste testing EVERYTHING.
Why does she have to live so far away (Pennsylvania)? Why can’t she be my best friend and live on Corlett Drive? Why world, why?
On Monday I attempted to make The Hummingbird Bakery’s chocolate fondant cupcake. Do I hear you asking what chocolate fondant cupcakes are? How does this sound, they are cupcakes that are so chocolatey that your face will never know where the chocolate starts and where it ends – so they are chocolate cupcakes that have a chocolate cream filled centre and chocolate cream icing on top. They are rich, but you won’t care one bit when you’re stuffing your pie hole with them because they are super delicious.
Tomorrow is love day and we are baking a bunch of nice cupcakes for Wolves for you and your smoochy face. We are also staying open late tomorrow night, so if you feel like some love cake and a drinkie after supper, come on over.
And if you email us on email@example.com we’ll even write your initials on the cupcakes, because let’s face it nothing says I love you like a cake with your name on it or a diamond encrusted car, which ever suits your credit card more.
