These cupcakes were for a cool 8 year old boy's birthday party! The cupcakes were sour cream chocolate cake. I hollowed out the centre of each cupcake and filled them with an Oreo cream cheese filling. The cupcakes were topped with cookies n' creme American buttercream frosting and a mini Oreo.
I had some leftover batter so I made a bunch of mini cupcakes which are the same minus the cream cheese filling. These cupcakes were good but they were so sweet that even some of the kids struggled to finish them!!
When faced with the dilemma of what to bring to a poker night, I decided on these Baileys hot fudge cupcakes. The cupcakes were chocolate Irish cream cake which was then hollowed out and filled with a chocolate Irish cream ganache. Each cupcake was topped with a swirl of Irish cream Italian meringue buttercream, dusted with cocoa and drizzled with Baileys hot fudge sauce.
These were super messy to eat but really delicious! There was a whole bottle of Baileys in these cupcakes but unfortunately they didn't get anyone tipsy enough to give me an advantage at poker ;-)
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
