TWD: Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes
After declaring to the whole world (or those who bother to read my blog :-P) that I don't like chocolate cakes, I have to eat my words and let you know what I did today - I had four of these chocolate cupcakes in the span of half a day. (gasp!)
I baked these cupcakes for my hubby who is a big fan of chocolate desserts, and also to take part in TWD this week. As some of the participants commented that the cakes are too dry, I made sure that mine won't dry out by monitoring the baking time closely, and I pulled out both trays of cakes at exactly 22 minutes. The cupcakes turned out great, soft and moist, and REALLY yummy.
After having the fourth one, I packed the rest of the cakes up, and just like the fate of this cake, they will end up in the tummies of my hubby's colleagues tomorrow. ;-)
I guess you might notice that the fondant flowers did not stick to the ganache. I should've arrange the flowers right after the ganache was piped to the cakes, but I put them aside to set up my tripod instead. Probably due to the aircon in the kitchen, the ganache has turned hard by the time I was done. So I had to let the flowers "sat" on the ganache while I took pictures of the cakes, and hoping that they won't drop at the same time. The fondant are not meant to be eaten anyway, and I like how my cupcakes look with the little flowers.
