Baking Recipe: Misletoe Cupcakes (Vanilla Buttercream+ Dark Chocolate Ganache Filled Cupcake)

When it comes to sharing the love and joy, I love turning to classics when I bake. It seems safe, but trust me nobody could resist a good old ultra moist fluffy chocolate cake, filled with ooey gooey dark chocolate ganache filling and frosted with old fashion vanilla butter cream.
I suppose you could say I am one who treasures my past, and present. While baking these cupcakes, the first thing that came to my mind is Audrey Hepburn in her Breakfast at Tiffany's advert. The whole black and white, is just so chic and classy. Since coming across the advert while I was just a mere young lady, I told myself that I would love to grow up to be refined and poise. Not quite sure if that worked out though..LOL.

Anyways, back to my Mistletoe Cupcake. Honestly, I don't know what to call them, and since I have always wanted to decorate with a mistletoe, I thought it would be a great idea to name my cuppies just as it is. For the love birds, you could say that I am creating a moment for you to get your kiss..Forgive me if I sounded lame. Then again, we are just a reserved bunch of people. So no kisses here tonight peeps! Hmmmph..[do I sense some raised eye brows?!?]
By the way, there won't be any recipe card, this time round. For recipe, please click on Chocolate Ganache Cupcake and here for the Old Fashion Vanilla Butter cream [note: do omit the lemon juice]. However, I have a virtual card to all of you readers whom I called you my foodie friend. Thanks for all the support through out the months and I do hope you will be back for more. Till then!!



  1. These look wonderful, I love the mistletoe on top. This is a great way to enjoy the wonderful flavor of chocolate. The texture of the cake looks amazing and that deep dark filling. No doubt a special treat to have for the holiday season-yum! Well done my friend and have a Merry Christmas!

  9. Hi all! Seems like I have not been commenting back in my post.. please forgive me. However, I very much prefer buzzing you over at your blog. Thanks for leaving me with such sweet comments, they mean a lot to me.

    A Bit of Budu: Thanks for clearing that up. I was not sure if it was Holly at first. Anyhow, I didn't have a great name for my cuppies.. Perhaps I will think of something better next time.
