I wanted to experiment on some cake flavours and also a Swiss meringue buttercream recipe, thus I launched Project Cupcake! Hehehe...
It was just a full day of baking different cupcakes and whipping up different frostings.
Here are the fruits off my labour:
A deep, dark, moist chocolate cake
a decadent Belgian chocolate ganache topping.
A fragrant vanilla bean cake
a delicately silky Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.
A fun Oreo crumbs cake
a yummy cookies and cream frosting.
A deliciously moist, light cocoa cake
a rich and fluffy cream cheese frosting.
I have to say, that the Red Velvet is my current favourite! But chocolate has always been an all-time favourite, so it's a tie I guess!!
The kids seemed to gravitate towards the Cookies and Cream ones, so the least popular were the Vanilla cupcakes. To me, vanilla cupcakes just seem boring. I wonder if there's something I'm doing wrong? I'll definitely be looking into more vanilla cake recipes...
