Our Newest Obsession



We have embarked on an new adventure with some inspiration from Cupcake Bakeshop by Chockylit and Ethel’s Earl Grey Chocolate Truffle. This is what we came up with…with variations to the theme to come!

Earl Grey Chocolate Cupcakes

Bogus and Tasteless Cupcake

As cute and delicious as this looks, we learned looks can be deceiving. Our taste tester reported the cake was “bogus and tastless”. Unfortunately, we had to agree. We had fun using the ginger with the pumpkin, but we are back to the drawing board…searching for a fantistic pumpkin cupcake with a bite of crystallized ginger. Happily, you can put the icing on just about anything (hairballs, four day old chicken ala king, sawdust) and it will taste just like carrot cake.

In honor of my brother and his birthday…I decided to figure out a way to combine my current obsession (cupcakes) with my brother’s favorite cake (German Chocolate). After some research, this is what I came up with. The first attempt was a semi-successful birthday present. The second attempt was a complete success, and the picture is our proof. Believe me…it tastes even better than it looks!
