Hostess Cupcake

Here is another one of Lizzy great Cupcake.  Thank you Lizzy for sharing these with me and I can't help but share your site with everyone.  Here is her Blog:   http://www.yourcupofcake.com/ 

The Story:
Wherever I go, I am “cupcake girl.” So sometimes I show up at a relative’s house and I am informed that I will be making cupcakes for a family affair. Do I have any tips, any scoops, even any cupcake pans? Nope. But I miraculously seem to make it work.

Chocolate Cake:

3 eggs
½ cup oil
¾ cup buttermilk
 1 cup sour cream
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 Devil’s Food Cake mix

Cream Filling:

8 oz cream cheese
¼ cup butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Ganche:

½ cup chocolate chips
2 T heavy cream
Melted White Chocolate for decoration


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with 20 cupcake liners.
2. In a large bowl, mix eggs, oil, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla extract.
3. Mix in (or sift in for easy mixing) cake mix and stir well.
4. Fill cupcake liners ¾ full and bake for 16-20 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
5. Cream Filling: Beat all ingredients for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Fill a piping bag with cream filling. 
6. When cupcakes are cooled, use a small knife to cut a cone shaped piece out of the top of each cupcake. Cut the point part off of each “cone” so that you can use the top as a “lid.” 
7. Fill the cupcake with filling and place the “lid” on top.
8. Ganache: Using a double boiler or the microwave, heat cream and chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Let cool for a few minutes, then spoon over cupcakes and spread evenly over cakes. Let set for 10 minutes. 
9. Melt white chocolate (be careful, white chocolate burns easily) and drizzle over cakes.

Thank you for coming by and I hope you will enjoy these as much as my husband is. If it sounds good to you please leave me a comment.

OMGosh those cupcakes look so yummy, wish i could try one :D

Thank you so much for commenting on my 'Spicy Spaghetti Christian' card today, I really do appreciate you taking the time to comment on my cards :D

Most of the people I use on my cards are stamps from www.simplybettystamps.com ; I'm lucky enough to be on Betty's design team, so I get to play with all her wonderful new creations, and they are some of the best images around if you like colouring, which i love :D

Have a great day
