Next up, espresso cakes with marscapone frosting. While they were cooling, I drizzled some marsala wine directly on the cakes.
For the frosting, I used about 8 oz. of marscapone, and 4 oz. of cream cheese, added (sifted) confectioners sugar, and then beat in some marsala wine and espresso powder.
These babies were amazing!

I've decided to really embrace my passion for cupcakes and set out on an experiment recipe cookbook adventure. I love to approach classic, simple recipes with a bit of innovation, making both the cake and frosting extra special.
My latest creation: Raspberry Frosting with all natural ingredients. To be frank, food coloring scares me, so I was super pleased with the lovely shade of pink I obtained with this frosting using a simple list of ingredients:
Frozen raspberries (since we're off season, fresh would be preferred)
The frosting was incredible. Proudly plopped on some moist chocolate cakes, the combination was divine!

The one-lady kspell factory is in effect. I'm trying to fill my sadly unexpected free time this weekend by getting in gear for Crafty Wonderland which is a short TWO WEEKS AWAY!
I'd much rather be at the coast, but at least I can indulge in bead geek outs and maybe an eventual hot yoga session in a day or so. The good news is I'm feeling inspired. It's nice to get back in the groove.
I finally listed new designs on Etsy last weekend and was awarded with a sale!
I hope there will be more!
