Cupcakes with chocolate ganache

Tonight was the third of four cupcake classes I’ve been holding at the local Women’s Community Centre. I’ve really enjoyed this work, it’s very different from face painting, but the process of helping people build skills is one I find very rewarding. Today we covered making and whipping chocolate ganache, filling cupcakes (we used raspberry jam or nutella), and make edible sugared decorations. They turned out really well.

It was too hot a day for me though, I’m tired, have a tummy ache, not looking forward to even hotter weather tomorrow. 😦 The car is going in to the mechanic this week, hopefully I will soon have air conditioning working in it again! 🙂
