Good Old Chocolate and Vanilla!!

Posted on

I am a visual food junkie and can be drawn into devouring something purely by it’s appearance.

I have been living sugar free for the past few months, so I have had to reserve every ounce of self discipline not to gobble up most of my creations.

But everyone has their breaking point and I folded like a stack of cards in a hot summer breeze with these…..

It was the good old simplicity of chocolate cupcakes, vanilla frosting with, pink sprinkles that got me.

Can you say sucker!

I added a white coloring to the frosting to give it a really bright white look. I learned about using white tint after reading a “10 Keys to Cookie Decorating Success” post over at Sweetopia. In the post she writes about tinting royal icing with white and the subtle difference it makes. I was using frosting and not royal icing, but I thought I would give it a whirl anyways….and my goodness what a difference!!!!

 The delicious swirl on top was created using a 1M tip. The end result made them appear as though they had Carvel vanilla soft serve ice-cream on the top of each one…..have I mentioned how much I love that as well.

 The cupcake was absolutely delicious and well worth the side track, but after each morsel was devoured and every finger licked clean, I made a quick decision to jump back onto the no-sugar wagon. I think I’ll be able to stay there as long as I don’t make these again anytime soon!

Happy Chocolate Peanut Butter Birthday

Posted on

My soon to be Sister in laws birthday was this past weekend, so I made some sweet treats in honor of her celebration!

These, well these are nothing more that a match  made in cupcake heaven, with delicious double chocolate cake and peanut butter butter-cream frosting. I adorned the top with shaved dark chocolate and a half a square of chocolate peeking out of the top! (You can find the recipe to make the Peanut Butter Frosting {HERE}

Now onto the chocolate lovers delight.

Well now, these ones appear simple, yet they are to die for if you are one of those people (me) who loves layer upon layer of chocolaty deliciousness!

Double chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting and a simple, sprinkle of pink at the birthday girls request!

They look so innocently chocolate, until you take that first bite……mmmmmmmmm chocolate!

I can’t help but admit that I love, love, love that moment when people take that first bite of my treats and then exclaim….

“Oh my God these are amazing”

Happy Happy Jan!
