the green dragon is the jalapeno cake with cayenne cream cheese
Monday, August 31, 2009
so today is my "pepper" cupcake challenge. i decided to do two types, jalapeno and serrano. the jalapeno are devils food chocolate cake with a cayenne cream cheese frosting. the serrano is also devils food cake with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting. hopefully the cream cheese will soften the blow of the spicy chocolate cake.
trying to decide what to make for this special day was tough. do i go with traditional "baby shower" theme or do something a little different? well being me i decided to do something different, not to mention all my candies i made melted because is was about 110 degrees in the house. so the sunflowers made the cut! because it was so hot i had to keep throwing the pieces in the fridge for a bit to cool them and harden things back up. the petals turned out a little droopy, but i think they all still looked like flowers.
