Do you have a favorite blogger? I've been following Taralynn for years now - she posts some of the most creative recipes, and has one of the coolest blogs on the Internet.
I saw this cupcake recipe when she originally posted it, but I've been afraid to actually make it. Whiskey cupcakes probably wouldn't go over at work, and I'm not going to bake a batch for myself. This weekend was my friend Dave's birthday, and since it was at Blind Rabbit (a whiskey bar), I thought they would be a great dessert to bring for him. They're chocolate cupcakes, filled with a chocolate-whiskey ganache and topped with homemade chocolate-whiskey buttercream.
You can get the recipe here. It's really easy to follow, and it comes out AMAZING. People were raving over them, Dave loved them, and I'm still hearing about how good they were a few days later. I definitely recommend you make them, and check out some of Taralynn's other recipes!
Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! And sometimes, real food!
