October the busiest month for baking!
Honestly October is the month I probably bake the most. We have numerous birthdays in our family as well as anniversaries and then there is Halloween. Well I always bake my mom and her husband cakes (I bake every person a cake for their birthday). I love doing it! Let me tell you I am getting better and better at it. I am learning how to make the absolute best cake and cupcakes now. As you can see in these pictures I made two (well three you only see two) mini cakes from one 9 inch square pan and made the rest cupcakes. I made a delicious rich chocolate mousse for the filling of the cakes and cupcakes. I made a delightful chocolate ganache I took half of it and I whipped it in the mixer until it became light and fluffy like chocolate icing, it was pipable and so good. I used it to go around the edges of the cupcakes and then filled the center of the cupcake with ganache, only after I already filled them with that mousse. For the cakes I took the square and cut it into 6 pieces so I could make 3 double layers. I put mousse between the two layers and then poured chocolate ganache over the entire cakes. I piped some of the lighter whipped ganache icing on to them and boom! Rich and Decadent triple chocolate cake and cupcakes!
