Cupcakes? Yes, Please!

This weekend my Aunt and Uncle and two of my cousins came to visit us. They are possibly the sweetest people ever, and I was so happy to see them again!

Being the designated family baker, I made more than a few sweet treats for our gatherings together, and this is one I thought I'd share with you!
Who doesn't like a good cupcake??
And who better to try out my new concoction than family, right? (They make the best guinea pigs.)
I introduce to you, my very own,
Over the Top Cupcakes
(They got their name from my sweet aunt who was still talking about them days later!)
***
They started out combining my hubby's favorite devil's food cake "recipe" with a yummy fudge cake "recipe".
(If you are wondering why I'm using quotations around words like "recipe", you must be new here. Welcome! My name is Stephanie and I have an inability to use recipes. I much prefer to invent my own - it's more fun that way!)

Then, because I wanted to do something different, I whipped up some scrumptious vanilla creme, and filled the center of each cupcake

Now, because they weren't decadent enough, I topped them with a combo of my chocolate fudge frosting and rich chocolate ganache! This right here is the reason to eat these cupcakes - yum!!!


Finish them off with some sprinkles and enjoy!


Pin It!

I'm very tempted to make these indulgent, sugary cupcakes for work on Monday. Is it wrong to bring something like this to a dental office?? ;)

Kristi Flanagan said...

Those sound like they are to die for! Yum - where is the recipe girlfriend? I know, you are being thoughtful and trying to keep me slim, right?
