It might be an sugar bomb but..... I don't really care!
Accidently I wanted to create regular chocolat cupcakes with creamy frosting covered with chocolate...they should look like the hi hats from Martha Steward-.- my chocolate didn't want to melt as I do.. it got a bit to hot.. so I decided to make a chocolate caramel ganache. Besides the taste the whole kitchen smelled sooooo delicous.
After covering my cupcakes..I still wasn't that happy yet... I decided to decorate my cupcakes..but how???? How about a nice royal icing? creating little dots & hearts....tadaaaa there you go!
Here are my valentines cupcakes. ;) Enjoy!
