Today is my friend/co-worker's birthday :)
And... when thinking of what kind of sweets to bake, 2 things popped into mind...
- she LOVES anything that has to do with owls (which is great b/c I LOVE them too... this will be fun) and
- she LOVES my chocolate stout cuppies
First off, let me tell you a little about these cuppies... they're YUMMY and super moist.
It's a rich chocolate cake baked with Guinness, topped with a YUMMY Bailey's buttercream, and drizzled with a dark chocolate ganache.... what's not to LOVE about that?!?!? It's a triple YUM :)
Let's get caking :)
here's a picture of the cuppies straight out the oven...
while they were cooling, I quickly made these adorable owl fondant toppers...
once those were complete, it was frosting time.
first, a nice swirl of buttercream...
then it's "drizzle" time :)
** side note ***
I think I may have gotten a little carried away while "drizzling".
Either that, or I don't know my own strength (LOL).
I had a little accident.
I must have squeezed the bottle I was using to "drizzle" a little too hard b/c the next thing i knew, the nozzle popped off and my YUMMY ganache was splattered EVERYWHERE!!!
check out the aftermath of the mini "explosion" (LOL)...
after I cleaned up my mess, it was on to the next step...
give each one of my cute little owls their very own fluffy home (LOL)...
say hello to...
I baked 24 cuppies but only made 12 toppers so... the other 12 where topped with yellow edible pearls. Aren't they pretty?!?!?...
I really hope Adela likes her cuppies and that she has an AMAZING birthday :)
*** I also hope that the girls in my office don't get "drunk" off of these cuppies.
I could get in serious trouble for that (LOL).
