You know how sometimes the more "sloppy" the food the better it tastes? well..... this is the story.....
Some great friends that I do real life with invited us over for dinner tonight..... they are making some Seafood and some other awesome goodies and we are going to practice our pool skills....
on a "go-pro" style Sharper Image Briefcase....
So I ask her , "what do I bring?" well, I have been saving the "goods" for a particular cocktail we tried at the Mill some years ago... GINGER / PEAR & Simple Syrup..... and something sweet to munch on....
OK so now this is where the madness begins....I look around and grab my STACYS BAKESHOP POUND CAKE CRISPS and I happen to have had some STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE too...good pair up and that along with some Champagne Cobbler...yea that should have done it
but NOOOOOO , I had to have some chocolate something....what would it be..? Cupcakes?
Cupcakes? I thought lets play cupcake wars....without the timer....... and I start to Creating....
LOL .....Chocolate Scratch Cupcakes.... plus um some coffee Liquor and a french vanilla filling with butter cream AND glaze frosting.... Oh Yea BABE
Well, the result was I lost in PRESENTATION ....... but I think TASTE and CREATIVENESS
I "took the cake" LOL....... I did some computer searches trying to brainstorm and nothing really "hit me" so I just started my stand mixer and my hand mixer (with a bit of limitation due to my arm injury -yes going to the doc monday about it- way overdue)
I started mixing and fixing and all of the sudden the cupcakes were exploding in the oven....they are soooo good tho....here you can SEE the results of: PEARL CUPCAKES.... Sloppy ? yep? Tasty Too....melt in your mouth French Chocolate & Vanilla Cupcakes with Glazed Butter Cream Vanilla Frosting ...and a Pearl or Two..or Three....
|EXPLOSIONS IN THE OVEN|
|SOME MORE SO THAN OTHERS !|
|oh boy they smell good|
|making the GLAZE.....|
|TO ADD TO SOME BUTTERCREAM and a CAN OF DUNCAN HINES VANILLA|
|PEARLS TO GO......|
|you see there wasn't quite enough frosting to cover these cupcakes, they had very large muffintops|
kind of like the muffin tops a few of these could create..... OMG they taste good!
So gotta work on that presentation....one day .... !
