New favourite cupcakes...

I made these for a very special 50th Birthday.

I made chocolate cupcakes and simply cut a hole in the middle and dig out some of the cupcake. Then I put a teaspoon of our homemade raspberry rhubarb Jam, then topped with delicious and perfectly shiny ganache. Then of course we add the frosting!! :) As if this cupcake couldn't get any better eh? I topped it off with our lovely Cream Cheese frosting and some chocolate shavings.

I actually got to eat one of these...yum!!


We're jammin we're jammin!!

That's right folks!! Jam! I love making all kinds of different things and one of those things is Jam!!!

I started making it last year when I made some wonderful shortbread (we all know I'm partial to shortbread) cookies. They were beautiful stars with a window and homemade jam behind it!

So we went to pick some raspberries with the kids one Sunday...and after desperately trying not to be eaten by mosquitos and as a result somewhat sweating to death... :) we made it home with 6 pints of Raspberries!! I also added some fresh rhubarb we had. This jam doesn't have any sugar, as I don't really feel like any is needed with fresh fruit bursting with juicy goodness.

I still have to wait about 10 more hours before they can officially be declared ready, but so far all lids have been sucked in!! :)


Keeping it simple

One of my absolute most favourite things about summer time is Smores. They are both tasty and slightly my nemesis, since I'm pretty sure I could eat 4 in one sitting...Anyways, I had some fresh raspberries on hand and decided to make a smore delight!

I microwaved (since I didn't have a campfire in my pocket) a marshmallow on a plate (that is an incredibly important step) for about 20-25 seconds until it started to expand. Then I pressed the raspberry in the middle and topped with chocolate and devoured it...or three...



A coworker is having a baby boy pretty soon, and since she lives in California, and loves cake, what better present to make than cupcakes?! I called and asked her if she had a theme, and I was absolutely delighted when she sent me a picture of a sweatshirt that she and her husband bought that was a Monster theme!

So I baked her some chocolate cupcakes, and adorned them with the monster figures from his shirt! They're made out of rolled fondant.
