The J-Dub Cupcake

Posted by Trish on June 13, 2012 at 7:15 PM

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!



P.s.

I'm proud to say I've been expanding my frozen treat flavours.  In addition to the last post about Ice-cream, I've churned out the following:

-Matcha (green tea) Cheesecake Ice Cream

-Match (green tea) Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream

-Matcha (green tea) Vanilla Swirl Ice Cream

-Classic Matcha (green tea)

* We went overzealous with the matcha base

-Bear Claw (chocolate with caramel swirl and chocolate covered almonds) Ice Cream

-Peppermint Lindt Chocolate Ice Cream

-Coconut Frozen Yogurt
