Happy Valentines Day!

Chocolate Cupcakes With MIlk Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Cupcakes With Dark Chocolate Ganache

My Valentines by theworkingdapur

Well, thank you for your support and order love, which gave me this idea! Someone wanted me to make truffles or pralines, and I was like 'Dude, thats not my forte, but I could make you something, since cakes are always comforting and chocolates are always welcomed'. He was like 'Ok'.

So I made petit fours, covered in milk, white and dark chocolate, heart shaped of course , about 220 in total. They were packed in a box, and passed of as chocolates. I made extra hearts to give to my friends today, well is it the 14th of February is it not? People were like 'oh ing, and aah ing' . I got a rush from that, trust me. Well to those who got my hearts, heheheh, enjoy and a Happy Valentines Day to you! ( Those who did noy, e-mail me to order ya!)

P/S: I would do these heart petit fours any time. The lovelies are the size of a mini cupcake, abour 2cm...imagine my joy of coating 220 pieces. Hehehehhe..

More savory offerings and an all time favorite

An all time favorite? A definite yes.

Something healthy.

Well, in my latest installation for my savory series, I am actually having fun experimenting with different combinations and textures. I had a conversation with one of my testers, and she stated that she has mixed feelings over the carrot ones, as it was cakey and savory, a not so typical thing on her palate, but for the corn and green chilli, she thought it was really nice. Which got me thinking, why so?
I could only imagine the Knights at Arthur's round table when Dad, Mom and myself set down, sampled and discussed my muffins. We came to a conclusion, these were more liked than the carrot ones just simply because, we could relate to the taste, texture and combination. We have this fritter like thing where some households have for tea the humble 'Cucur Jagung'.
It's a batter, a combination of flour, water, an egg, fresh corn kernels and chopped green chillies. Sound familiar? It should, as it's also the ingredients in the muffins. Aah...mystery of the palate solved :-)
