cupcakes!

Yesterday phaedra_lari and I made three kinds of VCTOTW cupcakes for a party.

Cupcakes!
Clockwise from lower right:
  • Your Basic Chocolate Cupcake, with Rich Chocolate Ganache Topping, garnished with white chocolate chips (vegan)
  • Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, garnished with raisins
  • Hazelnut Cupcakes with Mocha Hazelnut Mousse Filling, garnished with toasted chopped hazelnuts
They disappeared in reverse order, naturally; we thought the hazelnut ones were marvelous, and the others, merely delish.

Notes:
  • The hazelnut cupcake recipe has an error, calling for hazelnut oil in step 2 but not listing the amount in the ingredients. We simply omitted it, and didn't miss it.
  • We toasted the hazelnuts after chopping in a dry pan on the stove, and also without trying to remove skins.
  • The cream cheese frosting is very buttery; substituting more cream cheese and a little less margarine would probably work a little better.
  • Leftover ganache goes well on strawberries.
