I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack! 

I was late to make both of these Cry 

Cupcakes I made a 11PM on Valentine's (there's supposed to be an apostrophe, right?  It's St. Valentine's day?) Day and the mini cheesecakes I made this morning with some leftover cheesecake filling I had from a cheesecake I took to a small get-together three days ago. 



These are Martha's One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes, and they're pretty damn tasty if I do say so myself!  I frosted them with a simple ganache made from equal weights of chocolate and cream.



For these I made the crust by tossing a handful of Nilla wafers into a bag, smashing them, then adding 3tbls of butter.  For the filling I used the recipe here, and the hearts are a dab of heated elderberry jam my Grandma made me <3

Thanks for taking a peek Smiley  I hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

Thanks so much, guys Smiley

@Remus - I'm very often up at 2AM frosting cupcakes or baking cookies.  It is more fun for some reason.  lol.  But then I have to wait until morning to take pictures and that kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiills me Tongue

@Stufie - I filled the little tins to the brim with crust because I was so scared they were going to break!

I'm so thrilled you guys like my photos!  Taking the photos makes baking even more fun Smiley
