Happy Valentine's Day!
I made these treats for my coworkers and they turned out really cute!
I made classic chocolate cupcakes and topped them off with a chocolate ganache frosting with raspberry liqueur flavoring. I then melted red chocolate chips into a heart shape mold for the topping and added red sprinkles.
The rest were white chocolate cupcakes with simple vanilla frosting. I tinted some a light mint thanks to the inspiration of the paper liner. I melted pink chocolate into the same mold I used for the red hearts and added it for garnish.
Both cakes were really decadent. The chocolate raspberry ganache reminded people of truffles, exactly what I was aiming for. I chose the chocolate theme to remind people of a box of chocolates. Next year I might go further with that theme and place some mini cupcakes in brown liners inside a heart shaped box and decorate them like chocolates. As you can see there were a bunch of sweets at the office today and our conference room smelled really, really good!
Hopefully you had a sweet Valentine's Day too! I'll be sharing my outfit photo tomorrow so stay tuned. Thanks for reading!
