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 😉

Basically, I've (we've) been given time, so long as we stay away and stay well! This sucks I know I'm right there with you! Although there is a lot (A LOT) of negative and negativity surrounding this pandemic I am trying to keep my focus on the positive, the silver lining, the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.  I'm trying to keep my vibration high focusing on all the good we are doing for one another and not getting mired down in all of the stress and sadness of it all. This is what I'll be doing...

I've always been a pretty private person, so I'm keeping the details for myself, but I will share that last year I learned something huge about myself! That ah-ha moment has drastically changed the way I'm seeing people, the world, the future, and the way I create...
