Hi friends ... I am baaaccckkk (using my Schwarzenegger voice )
It was my hubby Joseph's birthday and he took a week off from work.
Thus the short blog hiatus
Joseph requested cupcakes for his birthday.
We do not like putting cream frosting on our cupcakes .
Since it is Joseph's birthday ... I decided to jazz it up a little and
made some ganache glaze to put on top.
I saw on Food Network how to make ganache
I never realized it was that EASY !
Here are the stuff you need ...
Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate chips
let it rest for a few seconds ( do not mix it yet )
until the chocolate is melted
Using a whisk, gently stir until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth
and add the Karo syrup too (about a tablespoon)
The karo syrup makes the ganache shiny
Ganache is such a complicated name
easy to make !
P.S. I really wasn't planning on going on a short blog hiatus
I already wrote a blog about The London Riot BUT
I felt the topic was too sensitive so I did not post it
BUT maybe someday I will share the photos with you ...
