Fudge Cupcakes

My experiment today was fudge cupcakes. I personally prefer them most since im a chocolate person. They taste very chocolately but not too sweet since i mixed ritter milk and dark lindt chocolate together for the fudge frosting.
Im so in love with my new cupcake stand.
Hubby was so nice he went shopping at Harrods and bought it for me as a surprise. Im such a sucker for cupcakes...I think i should broaden my baking horizons and start trying new recipes from my cook books soon!!!

Fruit Fool

Cupcakes with fruits....lots of them actually. I chopped kiwis,mangoes, passionfruit and tangerines into the batter and also the buttercream.. Refreshing taste, very light and fruity. Next time i will definitely mix more fruit into the batter chopping them into bigger and chunkier pieces.

Chunky Brownies Cheesecake

Thank you to smitten kitchen and her lovely blog where i found inspiration to bake the most intensely delicious cheesecake.It is terrific! I will definitely bake this over and over again. I adjusted the recipe adding 3 tbsp of cornflour and 2 cups of whipped cream folded into the creamcheese batter to lighten the cheesecake,since i found the original recipe abit too dense for my taste. The chunks of brownies folded onto the batter is to die for!!!This cheesecake is definitely a keeper. ( add more brownies is also another option noted for next time)

Chocolate Mousse Fudge Cake

Had an order today for a bday
cake...I really had alot of fun tried out three different frostings in one cake...Pasted the bottom layer with vanilla whipped cream, the second with chocolate ganache and third with chocolate mousse.To finish it off i frosted the cake with a layer of choc mousse and chocolate ganache mixed together.I think the fun in baking is creating a new cake everyday! Just like mixing and matching ( hope this combination's a hit!)
