so my boyfriend wanted ice cream cake for his birthday. i didn't have much time, so that wasn't going to happen. but cupcakes filled with ice cream was totally do-able.* they turned out super yummy.
chocolate mint ganache (heavy cream, semisweet chocolate, and mint extract), dark chocolate cake mix, and mint chip ice cream.
i learned that frozen veggies are no substitute for an ice bath to cool the ganache. i ended up putting it in the fridge for a half hourish.
