Sometimes, I even surprise myself!



I did it...I created that yummy cupcake (see May 28th)!!! Thanks go out to Bakerella for sending me the right direction in suggesting that it looked like a hi-hat cupcake. This sent me on an internet search. I found various pictures and recipes of a hi-hat cupcake. I had never seen nor heard of this divine creation. My little baker's brain started mixing up how I could tweak the recipes in order to produce a masterpiece...and after hours (yes, it did take a long time to make) and a sugar coma - I did it!!!

It actually should be called a coma-cupcake with the rich chocolate cake, the fluffy vanilla/almond filling and the scrumptious chocolate ganache topping...
As you can see from my pictures, I did not do the swirled top like a hi-hat - I thought that would surely kill us all...but we would have gone satiated and with a smile on our faces!

Well, I have been at work for 18 minutes and your cupcakes are all gone - I sent out a picture of them and they flew off the shelves! Why aren't you in business? I swear we could be making a fortune. We will have to teach Kailyn how to use the mixer and ignore the child labor laws :) Love you!

So after I awoke from my mini-coma, induced by reading the description of the cupcake, I decided that I MUST eat one of them. Of course by that I mean one at a time until I have calmly slipped into a diabetic coma.
Those look so freakin' good!

David - Since you are almost one of the family, I promise to make these for you the next time you come to Colorado...I will have insulin ready!
