My blog 1 Year Old & Chocolate Cupcakes
Today, my blog is one year old. Still a baby, isn´t it?. Until now, I´ve been collected more than one hundred recipes, not bad. Here is my first posting. So, I would like to thank you: all my friends who leave me comments, support, share recipes, stopping by my site. Inspired by Hany von Gillern, I made cupcakes decorated with marzipan mini roses. Actually, I´m not a big fan of marzipan, but I couldn´t found fondant in nearby supermarkets.
Marzipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar and ground almond (source: Wikipedia)
Makes 21 cupcakes
1 tsp emulsifier TBM
75 g castor sugar
100 g all purpose flour
15 g (3 teaspoons) chocolate powder
1 tablespoon maizena/corn flour
directions: put eggs, sugar and emulsifier into a bowl of electric mixer, beat on high speed until mixture is thick and creamy. Sift dry ingredients so that all ingredients are thoroughly combined, with spatula or with a low speed mixer. Pour mixture into muffins baking pan. Bake for about 20 minutes at 180°C.
