Salt, Birthdays, and Bon Voyage.

Ahh we meet again.
We've been busy, real busy, but baking doesn't take a rest. Finals took their toll but we still found time to make these chocolate, salted-caramel filled cupcakes. These weren't our best creations, but you live and learn.

We learned to be conservative when adding salt to something sweet like chocolate. This recipe had potential, but due to salt overdose, they never reached their prime. Oh, one good thing about these cups: their ganache frosting called for THREE sticks of butter. It was rich and tasty.
We would like to introduce you to someone very dear to our hearts:
Allison Rae Choco
We lost Allie to Spain the past semester but we're happy to say she's back again!
To celebrate her return and her birthday we decided to bake her a little something special. We decided to keep it simple with a yellow cake with a fudge frosting. It got a little runny, which made for difficulty with decorating, as you can see, but it tasted spectacular!
It was our friend Jake's birthday, too.
Now we are left in an awkward position. We have been presented with the opportunity to travel to Europe for 5 weeks which means we will not be baking during this time. However, we have a proposition to make. How do you feel about keeping up with all of the tasty pastries and various European sweets we try while overseas?

We're feelin pretty good!

See you in Europe! Our first stop: London.
