Valentine cupcakes

If you happen to be in the Etobicoke area saturday Feb 5th, drop by the Mastercard Centre at 400 Kipling Ave and pick up one of these yummy treats.  Chocolate or vanilla cupcakes. $2.50 each

I picked up these cupcake papers at bulk barn

Lindt 70% cocoa dark chocolate.  I added this to the batter for the chocolate cupcakes

doesn't it look like soft serve ice cream? :P

fun sprinkles for vday the hearts are my favourite!

vanilla cupcakes


chocolate cupcakes

I just discovered this handy little carrier at my favourite store Williams-Sonoma.  So far I've found it is the best thing to store and transport cupcakes easily.
Come by this saturday...only a limited quantity...run dont walk!!!

chocolate chip banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting :)

I used Lindt 70% cocoa dark chocolate roughly chopped. About a bar and a half

To make the batter you just dump all the ingredients in the processor and whiz it up until smooth.  Then I folded in the chocolate chunks


The peanut butter was already nice and fluffy to start with.  I've never seen whipped peanut butter before, it had such a nice light texture.

the finished cakes :)

they didn't last very long
A classic combination -chocolate, peanut butter and banana....mmmm mmm.
