I haven’t posted in the show and tell forum for a long time. ( Just being lazy ) I made these cupcakes for our family easter dinner.
1. Rose’s yellow butter cupcake recipe filled with pastry cream and white chocolate mousseline buttercream rose swirls. The butterflies are made with gelatin and gumpaste.
2. Rose’s red velvet cupcakes with creamy dreamy cream chesse icing. The red roses are made with white chocolate modelling clay that I colored red, then pressed into a silicone mold.
3. My favorite - the deep dark passion chocolate cake made into cupcakes, filled with chocolate hazelnut praline mousse and piped with chocolate neoclassic buttercream. ( OMG - they were so good!!!! )
I got beautiful domed cupcakes with the red velvet and the deep dark passion chocolate cupcakes, but I am still struggling to find a recipe for vanilla that produces a nice dome. But no one could really tell after the buttercream was piped on.
I was originally going to tint the red velvet cupcakes different colors for an easter theme, but decided not to do it at the last minute, because I was afraid they would not turn out pretty pastel colors. When I have some free time I will try maybe half the recipe with a different color and see how the color looks.
