BAKE iT | Chocolate Ganache Frosted Cupcakes

I am STiLL obsessing over the Chocolate Ganache frosting recipe I shared with you in December.
I used it for a cake...
and now for these...

Chocolate Ganache Frosted Cupcakes



Just in time for Valentine's Day...
or any day for that matter if you are a chocolate ganache + cupcake lover.

I did not pipe on the frosting like I would typically do for several reasons:
• The ganache frosting is softer than typical frostings and I feared it would not keep it's perfectly piped shape.
• I was too lazy to get my piping bags and tips out.
• I've been VERY interested in vintage desserts and frosting techniques and decided to use the good ole hand-frosted method.
• I wanted to roll the edges with these darling pastel sprinkles.

I hope the next batch of cupcakes you'll make...
you'll consider this chocolate ganache frosting...
OR...
you could core the cupcakes...
and use the ganache as a filling too! Yum!

Did you notice the pink sprinkles just so happen to match the Valentine's Day color inspiration I shared with you? Love!!

Before I go...
doing a quick check-in with all of the people participating in the Promise Me movement we've got going on here.

So excited to get started.
You've got until January 31st to finish creating your lists.

KEEPiNG iT REAL
I had to crop the first photo so you wouldn't notice the nibbled edge on the mini cupcake.
I left them unattended for just a minute as I was setting up to photograph them.
Two seconds later, I caught my mischievous jack russell, Hamilton, red-handed.
Just in the nick of time, I might add. *wink*

Want to see it?

I'm SO lucky he didn't just gobble the entire thing...c'mon...what dog "nibbles" anything?
