More Cupcakes!

July 8th, 2009 @ 10:43 am by Melody @ Sweet and Saucy Shop

My friend from pastry school was having her 40th birthday party and she asked me to help out. For the dessert she wanted cupcakes of course.:grin: She said she wanted to keep it simple so we went with vanilla cupcakes with chocolate mousse buttercream and chocolate cupcakes with Chockylit’s cream cheese frosting (aka Vanilla Bean Frosting). Both of these are simple delicious!

The vanilla cupcakes I tried for the first time are from Vanilla Bakeshop. They gave the recipe away on the Martha Stewart show, and I knew I had to try it. The chocolate mousse buttercream is from Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey which is a fantastic book that I recommend. This is probably my favorite chocolate frosting right now -definitely worth a try.

As you can see, I topped the pearls with little balls of goodness! On the chocolate mousse buttercream I sprinkled Pearlized Ivory Dragees from Surfas. On the cream cheese frosting, I sprinkled Valrhona Chocolate Pearls from Surfas too (You can also get them at a lot of Whole Foods too). These are a fun topping that also taste delicious!

I really hope after the wedding to be able to devote time and energy to more kitchen forays, including baking cakes and cupcakes for family and friend birthdays! :-)

Wow! Those look delicious as usual — I love how your chocolate cupcakes look almost black with all the cocoa. You’re making me drool on my keyboard!
