Last week was my 28th birthday and I had a very exciting plan for some cupcakes! I’ve bookmarked quite a few recipes on Foodgawker over the past couple of months. Many of them are cupcake recipes! :) I picked two of them to make for my birthday!
First was the Irish Carbomb Cupcake. An obvious St. Patrick’s Day inspiration!
Second was a Mexican Chocolate Cupcake!
For the Irish Carbomb Cupcake, I followed the recipe except for two things. For the ganache, I added twice the whiskey called for ;) and I added the whiskey after it had cooled a bit. For the frosting, I added about 1/2 cup less of the confectioners sugar.
For the Mexican Chocolate Cupcake, I wouldn’t change a thing! Just note that the recipe is made at high altitude in Denver!
So the question is: are you on Team Irish Carbomb or Team Mexican Chocolate??
