Up at 5am this morning to finish the cupcakes... Had a little trouble with the chocolate ganache at first. But my awesome husband made a quick run to the supermarket to get more chocolate to try again. All worth it, the third time was the charm...
I hope the girl scouts enjoyed them during the meeting this afternoon...
Ammie's Sweet Treats received its first request for cupcakes. The order is for a dozen cupcakes for Girl Scout Troop Meeting. The recipe has been picked out - It's a take on the Hostess Chocolate Cupcake from the Martha Stewart book.
I did a practice run over the weekend and will be adding a little chocolate ganache on top as well... Stay tuned as the photo's will be up on Wednesday.
Success! Yesterday was the Baby Shower and the cupcakes were a hit! I had so much fun baking everything - even with the last minute switch in plans. The original plan was for chai tea, marble & stout flavored cupcakes. I just wasn't feeling that the stout cupcakes were working. Luckily, we had picked up strawberries when getting the last ingredients and so I whipped up another batch of the strawberry cupcakes.
Turns out the strawberry came out even better than last week and were the big hit! Plus, thanks to Scott making up awesome display name cards the whole presentation looked amazing.
I totally love that everyone was enjoying my cupcakes during the fabulous baby shower. Hopefully, I'll get to do it again soon.
It's a boy - baby shower!

I've asked some friends if I could make the cupcakes for their baby shower. They agreed:) Very exciting, its in a couple of weeks. So, this weekend is dedicated to baking recon - I've picked out a couple of different recipes and am practicing Chocolate Malted cupcakes first....
