Sweet Cuppin Cakes

The interest of the moment is cupcakes. I've been reading about them, designing them, inventing flavors, and generally obsessing. You may remember these from myspace:

I made them about a month ago to look like my adorable dog, Puddles. I've just heard that they may be posted on a blog by the authors of a lovely book called Hello Cupcake. I'll be sure to post a link as soon as they show up over there.

For now, the first attempt at Irish Car bomb cupcakes has been made. It's my newest invention of Guinness cupcake with Irish Cream center and a yummy dark chocolate ganache on top.Here they are in all their glory:

I love, love, love their glamorous shiny tops! They look so sophisticated on the plate.

However, they aren't yet ready for all the VIP tasters out there. I decided that the ganache wasn't as thick as I'd like, since I got in a big hurry to dip them and also I think I need to up the chocolate and whiskey in the mix. Second problem, my filling technique. I used this crazy syringe thing I found at the Galley in Chico, and it put out a small amount of yummy filling, considering the monster hole it left me to patch up. See?

So, back to the drawing board. I promise they will be out to you my valued tasters as soon as Miss Perfectionist is satisfied.
