Cupcake day is to raise money for the RSPCA (animal society) so here's my 'blog' on how I baked a zillion cuppy cakes for the critters.
First we have a BIIIG ole bag o'groceries. This is mainly junk to either go in or on the cupcakes. I had no idea what to bake at this point, so I covered all the bases. I think I ended up using maybe half of what I'd bought but hey now I have more excuse to cook for some other occasion.
Here are some white chocolate raspberry mudcake cuppies.
Hazelnut coffee choc chip. I'm making these up based on existing recipes but adding my own (usually chocolate) flair.
Cute paw prints made from m&m's. I think they look cute, or like flowers with half the petals pulled off... whichever.
Here is the last batch I made that I ended up dunking in choc chips because I can't decorate for shit.
Our table looked cute at least - the ones in the top left corner are a co-workers who donated some more to the cause, much better decorated than mine. I don't use icing - so they're all ganache, chocolate, cream cheese or cream. Mmmm... diet be gone.
The most popular ones were the ones in the middle left - the gingerbread and lemon cream cheese frosting. They were YUMMY and only 1 was left by the end. We raised a little over $150 and have leftovers to last the next morning tea at least. Yay!
