Baby Shower Cupcakes & Chocolate Sour Cream Ganache Recipe
I made these for a friend's baby shower many moons ago...I found the instructions here on Wilton's website. I think they turned out well....and they were fun to make. Of course, if I had to make 40 of them, I wouldn't think so...they definitely take time and really who could eat that much fondant??!! Instead, I made plain cupcakes and placed a baby themed candy on each one.
To be honest I don't remember what recipe I used for the cupcakes but I do remember the incredibly easy chocolate ganache frosting recipe.
Chocolate Sour Cream Ganache
from The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum
(Make about 2-1/2 c)
12 oz dark chocolate (I use Lindt)
400g sourcream , at room temperature!
What to do
Break the chocolate into small pieces and carefully melt in sauce pan over low heat or in the microwave.
Gently stir to incorporate the sourcream.
NB: Stores 3 days at room temperature.
