This will be my second alcohol-free cupcake post in a row! That’s some sort of record, I am sure. These cupcakes were for the same baby shower as the previous Almond and Vanilla ones. Frankly, there’s not too much creativity going on here, as I jacked Gibb’s Brown Sugar Cupcake recipe once again, and I’m stealing my own Peanut Butter Mousse. Add some jelly in the middle, and you have a peanut butter and jelly cupcake :) (more…)
I have many vices in life; I tend to overindulge in extensive napping, wine, bad historical romance novels, the pursuit of the perfect microbrew, cigars, port, and baking sweets.
It was the idea of finding the perfect treat to accompany a good cigar and delicious port that lead to the creation of this cupcake. My family, friends, and I would be breaking open a bottle of Cloud 9 Rapport, a ruby-style port. This particular port was richer, and smoother, and less fruity than your traditional ruby. Pairing this port with a cigar was going to be heaven. Now, if only we had the perfect little bite of chocolate to complement the edge and smokeyness of the cigar without overpowering the port!
And Decadent Chocolate Cupcakes were born…
This time, hazelnut cupcakes with vegan hazelnut mocha mousse filling piped in.
These…were a lot of work, but the results were pretty darn good. These, like many delightful baked goods, involve an alcoholic beverage. I would very much like to try to make chocolate stout cupcakes. I’ll post when that does happen. I’m in a town with a beer culture that means I can go to the grocery store and buy craft beer–which is a great situation to be in when you’re a beer fan.
Anyhow, on to these little charmers. These are from the Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero’s Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World, which you should strongly consider buying.
This is a time consuming project, make no mistake. Is it worth it?
