1  Valentine's Day Petit Fours in Dessert by irishfrogg on: February 14, 2011 08:48:12 AM
I've always wanted to try making petit fours, and since I'm low on money this year I decided to make them as a Valentine's gift for my fiance! I made them using chocolate pound cake, chocolate buttercream icing, and poured fondant icing. The three different icing colors are three different flavors (pink-raspberry, purple-almond, white-vanilla). They took me over 5 hours to make, but I'm really happy with the way they turned out.  Smiley

2  Super Easy Chocolate Mug Cake!!! in Dessert by irishfrogg on: April 18, 2010 10:35:49 PM
So, I've seen a lot of recipes online for a "5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake". Being the chocoholic that I am, I HAD to try this. Many people said it was coming out rubbery, and just plain nasty. I concluded that this was due to overcooking. I combined several of the recipes, and came up with this:

4 tbsp flour
2 packages of hot chocolate mix (I only used 1, but will use 2 next time)
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp milk
3-4 tbsp of finely chopped chocolate (I used Dove dark chocolate)

I used an extra large mug (about 5 inches in diameter), mixed the dry ingredients, then added the wet and the chocolate.

Then microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, let stand in the microwave for about a minute, nuke 30 more seconds.

Let stand 1-2 minutes, and voila!

Chocolate cake!

It was very good! Not wonderful, but definitely good, and perfect for a quick chocolate fix. All it needed was a bit more cocoa and sugar, which is why I said to use 2 hot chocolate packages instead of just one. It was yummy, and I'll certainly make it again. Smiley

3  Tie Dye Cupcakes!!! in Dessert by irishfrogg on: April 11, 2010 09:46:03 PM
I was bored at home one day, and got a harebrained idea to make some super colorful tie dye cupcakes!

It's really simple, I just used a box mix of yellow cake batter, separated it into 5 or 6 bowls, and used food coloring to make bright and funky colors!

I layered the colors into the cup cake pan, and used a fork to try to mix them up a bit. They ended up looking more like stripes than tie dye, but still very fun!

I used chocolate icing because I'm addicted, but white icing dye different colors and swirled on top would have taken it up a notch!
