Bernie and Denise are getting ready for their 2nd CSA. They are hosting a lunch for their CSA members. Information on their CSA can be found here: http://threegoatfarm.com/
They asked me to make cupcakes, and we all know I love to bake! I wanted something new and different. I decided to make 2 kinds:
Red velvet with cream cheese frosting
Hazelnut brownie bites with a cocoa buttermilk frostting
I really am looking for an adult party to make baileys Irish cream cupcakes.
The red velvet was just a box cake mix with vanilla added to it. The frosting was a basic cream cheese frosting.
The Hazelnut Brownies are simply, to start just mak cake like brownie batter. I put them into the mini cupcake pans but I did not fill them too high about 75%. The center was a cheesecake mix made from Cream Cheese, powdered sugar, an egg, some of my homemade nutella and some almond extract.
Normally I would swirl the cheesecake into the brownie but this time I wanted it to be all in the center when you bit into it. The frosting was buttermilk frosting with cocoa added and a few table spoons of hot choc. mix.
Both kinds made 72 mini cupcakes.
Then it came time to frost them. ahh the temptation.
I just wanted a spoon and eat right out of the bowl.
once they were lined up I started frosting
I love my new cupcake decorator. Didn’t it make the nicest star design? I hope they enjoy them!
