And now I present to you, the cupcake of the night!
You start out with the same base chocolate cupcake. For this round, I bought Organic Cacao Chocolate Powder to see if it improved the tast. I am sorta bummed that I bought these super cute cupcake wrappers and you can't even see them. I put one on the cooling rack upside down so you can see it.
You also use the same Fluffy Vanilla Butter Cream Frosting as before. However, I do not use shortening, only butter and I 1/2 the recipe. The addition to this cupcake is making up some sweet dark cherries in a pomegranate sauce and doing a super cool decorating technique. You scoop out part of the cupcake to use in building your cupcake tower. Then, it's just a matter of layering fluffy butter cream, cherries, chocolate cupcake and candied cherries with chocolate shavings.
The pictures really do not do the beauty of this cupcake justice. I was so proud of myself ~ toot, toot, my own horn! LOL. Seriously, I am by no means a fancy baker, I like to bake but it isn't exactly fancy. My secret is the super cool decorating tool I bought. It is seriously the best $10 I've ever spent at Walmart. Here is a pick up close:
I actually haven't tasted the cupcake as The Husband inhaled this one. I am however carting everything to work tomorrow to share :D I will give you a review then. The Husband did devour it pretty quickly and said he like it for not liking chocolate and fruit together - once again, he's funny!
I am off to do some yoga, shower, and get caught up on some sleep. Night all!
