Year of the Cupcake: February

Chocolate Orange

This month I challenged myself with making orange curd.  The chocolate orange recipe is one of my own devising, using a box cake add zest of two oranges, and substitute water for orange juice.  Then make a homemade orange curd and fill the cupcakes (cutting out the middles).  Finally, make a chocolate orange cream cheese frosting by using zest of two more oranges.  I loved it, and work was complementary, but my husband really, really didn’t like it.

Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Frosting

These were good, and I put in raisins and crushed pineapple, so it is practically a salad!

  Rum Vanilla

This has rum in the cake and in the cream cheese frosting.  While it wasn’t enough to become boozy, it was enough to really make the vanilla pop, and if I am FORCED into a plan vanilla cupcake, it will probably be this.
