Chocolate, chocolate, CHOCOLATE!!!

Chocolate, chocolate, CHOCOLATE!!!

Chocolate! Who doesn't love chocolate!?! Well, besides my husband (he's an oddity). I crave it, but I rarely make anything chocolate because I'll be the only one eating it. I have a solution! Because my team at the gallery is so fabulous I'm making chocolate overload cupcakes to share (and spare myself lol). Topping off the moist and delicious chocolately cupcake goodness will be ganache. If you've never had it ganache is incredible and versatile, I now use it whenever and wherever I can! I had some trouble in the past getting the perfect consistency then I discovered this post from Natasha's Kitchen and now it's perfect every time!

 

Perfect Chocolate Ganache

 

For me, there's nothing more disappointing than lackluster chocolate cake when you're having a serious craving! I prefer dark chocolate and after searching and searching and searching and searching ☹️ for a replacement for my favorite chocolate cake, the Chocolate Chocolate Tower that Outback Steakhouse has now deleted from the menu, I resorted to making my own. I still need to find a recipe for the raspberry sauce. Anyway, I discovered the Cisse' Cocoa Co. Dark Chocolate Cake mix at my local grocery store and decided to give it a try. It's moist, has a fantastic texture, and is packed with deep rich luscious flavor. It's totally worth the price IMHO! I've made a layer cake and now cupcakes both with great success. We'll see how my coworkers feel about it, but I honestly don't know how they could possibly complain 😉

I'm often asked the question what is the difference between gold filled and gold plated jewelry? Here are all of the reasons laid out by Halstead. I use gold filled components in my jewelry as a more affordable option to solid gold and I'm always happy to create in solid gold when requested and possible.
