Baking at home
This weekend has been a stay at home type of weekend. I decided to make some cupcakes since I have not baked anything at all to date this year! It is actually quite unusual for me since I used to bake a lot more. However, as work has consumed my life and I have been traveling, baking was just not on the top of my to do list.
Given that Thanksgiving is next Thursday, I decided what better time to bake something to bring to work than today. So I took out my equipment, cleared out the oven, and chose to make cupcakes.
With the help of my favorite Trader Joe’s Pumpkin mix and I wanted to spice it up a little. That’s why I decided to make them Chocolate filled Pumpkin cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. I’ll let my pictures talk for themselves first before I interject again:
They look delicious right? I will report on it tomorrow when I bring and share them with the team at work. 🙂
Update: The cupcakes turned out good and the team really enjoyed them. My only problem with it was that I should have make a ganache center instead. The melted chocolate had solidified so it was a chunk of chocolate in the center. Amateur mistake and I should have known better. Live and let learn! 🙂 Otherwise…I’d say it was a success!
