Yesterdaywas Valentine's Dayand I wanted tobakesomethingin secretin order tosurprise the kidsin the morning.Proved to be Not quiteeasily, as the kidshavea special ability toalwaysknowwhensomething is going on.......but whennight came andtheywent to sleep, I had my opportunity. I bakedcupcakesin the shape ofcakesbunk, dressed inchocolateanddecorated with smallsugarflowers andbutterflies.Became veryappreciatedin the morning.Andbest of all.....theygot to eatitin bed.....
Here's how: Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar in a bowl. Add the unsalted butter. In a separate bowl, blend flour, starch and yeast. Pour it into the egg mixture and mix gently. Fill the silicone mold to 3/4 parts and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degree heat. Let cool completely in the mold before you dip them in chocolate. Make chocolate ganachen meanwhile by heating the chocolate and cream until everything is melted together.
Remove the cupcakes from molds and put those on a wire rack. Pour over chocolate ganache when it has cooled down a bit and let the excess chocolate to drain. Let rest in the fridge for a while before you garnish with sugar flowers, sprinkles or else.... I have used flowers and butterflies which i make of sugar paste. Good luck!
The recipe here is for 6pcs of cupcakes and silicone mold are available at hobby shops.
