J once again invited guests and requested for a dessert to be made. I had to name the resulting dessert after him because he paired the flavours of this concoction in such a unique way, that I initially had doubted the outcome of this decadent fellow.
We started out with the same chocolate cake base as his birthday cake. The chocolate cake is a moist, dark, rich cake.
Next we filled AND topped each cupcake with the salted caramel frosting (also from J's b-day cake). I know, this is beginning to not look very different from his birthday cake, so what is all the fuss about?
He decided we would top them off with a vanilla-cream cheese frosting to satisfy his roomie's craving and put a new twist on the cupcakes. My initial thought was ".....are you sure?" Foodies, let's think for a minute. You've got a dark, sweet chocolate base, filled with salted caramel and topped with a tangy vanilla frosting. I wasn't sold on the thought but I went along with it.
Oh My Goodness!!! J, you are an absolute genius!!! I understood the cream cheese and chocolate. I understood the salted caramel and chocolate. But I could not wrap my head around this trio combination until I tasted it. It was amazing! The tangy frosting offsets the richness from the cake base and the sweetness from the salted caramel filling.
Patrissherie - "Oh my goodness! It's soo good!! I'm going to name it after you"
J- "hmm... maybe you should give it a fancier name???"
Well J, I'm naming this concoction after you anyways!
