Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

My brother’s girlfriend was hosting a purse party.  She asked if I could make her some delicious cupcakes for it. “ What flavor cupcake do you want?” I asked.  She said chocolate raspberry.  PERFECT!  I love those combinations of flavor.

She was having a chocolate themed party, with hot chocolate and different liquors to put in it.  So I figured, why not pump up the chocolate in these cupcakes.  Instead of going with a raspberry buttercream on top, I went with a whipped chocolate ganache.  But I had to incorporate the raspberry, so I filled the cupcakes with a raspberry compote.

They may look a little hideous now, but the ganache covered the tops up so you can’t tell at all that I destroyed them.

I made little fondant zebra print purses to to tie the purse party together.  How cute are they?

Happy New Year!!!!

Lets ring in 2012 the right way….with cake pops!

I made cake pops for every hour of the night….because it’s not only New Years here, but New Years all around the world!  Don’t mind the black fingers….I was hand painting the clocks, and it got a bit messy.

Another way you can have New Years around the world is to get a variety of different champagnes from all over (or sparking wines) and toast them throughout the night as if you were there.  But PLEASE don’t drink and drive!!
