Happy October guys!
Although in Athens the weather is hot hot hot, we can pretend is Autumn...
Autumn means : umbrellas, rainy days and of course mmmushrooms!
I was thinking a lot about my next post and I decided to combine some things that I love.
Mushrooms, cupcakes, chocolate and creepiness! Boo!
I had bought this Ikea pan and I had never used it.
So that's my chance to bake some cupcakes using my favorite recipe
"White" cake seems plain to me,
that's why I filled them up with chocolate ganache creme...
Then I used modeling chocolate to cover them with.
I coloured the paste using "Christmas red" food colouring by Wilton.
I kept some white modeling chocolate for the spots.
I cut a piece of straw and I used it as cutter for my paste. I also used a bamboo stick to put the chocolate out.
After 20-30 spots I get bored and i keep on spotting using white "super easy to" icing (sugar &water)
And that's my mushroom bouquet!
Red, spotted and full of chocolate!
And that's a bonus tip!
If you want to carry them out and you're fed up of buying all these useless accessories (come on now... how many times you will use a cupcake carrier?)
just use a cardboard egg carton!!!
