I also made a bunch of cupcakes for the party last night. This is one that I just kind of came up with on my own. I got a lot of those Lindt Lindor truffles for Christmas, probably because everyone knows how much I love chocolate, but I just can’t eat them all and keep the pounds off so I decided to use them in cupcakes! The recipe for the cupcakes, called “Making a box cake taste like it’s from a bakery”, comes from a website called “Bronze Budget Brides” and the rest of the process is from me. Here’s the cake/cupcake recipe:
1 Look at the directions on the cake mix
2 Add 1 more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
3 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
4 Instead of water, use milk
5 Mix well and bake for the time recommended on the box
I followed the above instructions and then right when the cupcakes came out of the oven, I cut an “X” into the top of each one with my kitchen shears, pushed an unwrapped truffle into that “X” until the truffle was flush with the top of the cupcake, and let them cool completely.
Courtney frosted them for me with our favorite buttercream icing to look like flowers and then finished them with White Sanding Sugar to give them a bit of sparkle. Pretty and delicious!
