Continuing on my year of cupcakes journey I made the February selection which was Chocolate-Strawberry. When I read the ingredients to my husband he stated that they sounded like neapolitan ice cream and he was right. Chocolate cupcakes that smelled like hot chocolate when I was making them, brushed with strawberry jam after baking and topped with a vanilla and chocolate frosting. The frosting is the star of these cupcakes made with melted white chocolate and melted dark chocolate. I hope to use the frosting for other recipes. These were a big hit with the family and they were so delicious. Definitely worth a repeat.
Today is National Cupcake Day, in Canada that is. Mardi Michels from eat.live.travel.write informed me about National Cupcake Day to benefit the ASPCA. I did not have time to sell cupcakes to help raise money for this worthy cause but I did bake to show my support.
In honor of my furry friend who was rescued from a shelter.
