A chocolate & strawberry filled New Year

cupcakes 5 v2

Happy 2012!

Hope you all had a wonderful (safe) New Year’s eve and rang in 2012 in style.

We did it with friends, food, prosecco and cupcakes. Chocolate covered strawberry cupcakes to be exact, and they were every bit as amazing as they sound and look.

Insides filled with strawberries and chocolate, tops covered in strawberry honey whipped cream and finished with a chocolate covered strawberry. It doesn’t get much better than that. This was my first time ever making cupcakes. 2012 just may be the year of them after these. Who needs black eyed peas when you’ve got a bowl filled with cupcake insides and leftover whipped cream?

    They’re beautiful! And boy, that must have been hard digging out the middles of those PERFECT cupcakes…ack! But the end result of the digging is even better looking cupcakes…LOVE the fruit in them and that frosting. NICE! :)

      I know, these were kind of a lot of effort. My patience was definitely tested but having the “insides” to eat along the way helped ;)

    Have you tried Peanut butter whipped cream? BEST frosting ever. Those cupcakes look amazing and totally worth the effort on such a great day!

    Our new years consisted of an epic Scene-It battle with Brent’s family, followed by a night of catching up with old friends over a couple six-packs of hard cider. Couldn’t ask for much more! Happy 2012!

      We bought Apples to Apples and played that last night. Board games are always good for a laugh or two ;)
