Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!

I’m a big fan of making chocolate-dipped strawberries for the holiday, but due to my recent cupcake baking frenzy, friends & co-workers will undoubtably be expecting cupcakes today! Not wanting to disappoint my “fans”, I instead made a chocolate ganache-dipped-strawberry CUPCAKE!

Chocolate Ganache Dipped Strawberry Cupcakes

I used Candice Nelson’s (Sprinkles Cupcakes founder) Strawberry Cupcake and frosting recipe that’s posted on the Martha Stewart website, and put a layer of chocolate ganache (recipe from Confetti Cakes cookbook) in between the two. The strawberry frosting was meant to just be decoration, but since ganache was made with bittersweet chocolate, the frosting adds some nice additional sweetness.
