I finished priming Oceans room, we picked two colours. Watermelon splash (for 1 wall), and whipped cream for the other 3. I have so many ideas for her room. We have moved around a lot with her, never being able to put down any roots. She is a super kid I figure she deserves her room finished first. After all she will be in her room a lot more then me in mine.
I like to dream about things I want to do with our home, mainly the kitchen. Since that is my space, and I have come to realize through home decor books that it is the "heart of the home". I like the way that sounds.
On to the cupcakes, getting mail is fun especially when its a present or in this case ORGANIC RAW CACAO CHOCOLATES, from UliMana. Yum Yum. I wanted to showcase these yummy treats so I used them as the topping to my chocolate cupcakes. OH YEAH!! These are amazing. I wanted to eat them as soon as I opened the package, but I contained my impulsiveness. Decided to wait for something special to do with them.
I used my chocolate cake recipe, its good, moist and has never failed me. This time I added a shot of espresso. Just to kick it up a notch. The frosting I usually eye it out and taste along the way, but here is the of it, feel free to change it up ( too sugary, not enough cocoa powder, etc...)
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup organic icing sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp earth balance margarine
3-4 tbsp vanilla almond milk
With a mixer, blend until fluffy
What is more special then a cupcake topped with a truffle?
