Need a Mint?

Mint and chocolate are just two things that when combined make something great. I began with a moist chocolate (cup)cake, and for the frosting a mint buttercream with chopped swiss dark chocolate infused with mint flavoring inside of the frosting. Then a nice ganache swirl. I also used chunks of the dark chocolate to top the cupcake along with a fresh mint leaf and peppermint.

German Chocolate-Oh My & a feature of Sweet Elites on Cupcakes Take the Cake!!!

So let me first start off this blog with a huge thank-you to for featuring Sweet Elites on their site, much respect for those gal's! I am extremely flattered and surprised. So to all my fellow cupcake fanatic's please check them out and give them some lovin.

I had an order placed a few day's ago for some German Chocolate Cupcakes with Heath bar toppings (heath bar's are not vegan but were asked for on request). So I got to bakin and shakin myself today to make the order. I L-O-V-E-D these cupcakes. So much so that I had a hard time letting them go. I started off with a moist chocolate cake brushed with kahlua liquor, followed by a layer of rich ganache, topped with ooey gooey German chocolate frosting *nom*nom*nom* and broken heath bar chocolate bar pieces and finally some ganache drizzles.The frosting was definitely a party in my mouth to say the least.

Thank-you again to Cupcakes Take The Cake and for my awesome supporters!
