Just testing...

This was just a test. It's a Brazilian Wedding Favor. It's filled with Dulce de leche. I was testing a brownie bites silicon pan, which disappointed me a little bit because I read somewhere that it wouldn't be needed to grease it, but it wasn't that easy to take the cake out of the pan as well as wash it out. But the shape was pretty nice, though. Next time I'll just spray a little butter or oil. However, I have to use another Dulce de Leche Brand or make it by myself 'cause it wasn't supposed to be so liquid and be sucked by the dough lol, but it was supposed to be thick and look like a mini sandwich.

I've been thinking about what's gonna be my next challenge... I hope a birthday cake or a wedding cake.

Cupcakes 4 Charity...

Last October 1st my husband and I joined the event that Cupcakes4Charity organized. It was really fun and full of delightful cupcakes. We had music, drinks, raffles and fun :)
Those are the ones I made for the event. The pink ones are strawberry cupcakes with one of the Brazilian strawberry truffle fillings iced with strawberry buttercream. I tried to ice the cupcakes with the filling but it was way too soft, I guess 'cause I used the white chocolate morsels instead pure white chocolate :(
The dark ones are chocolate cupcakes filled and iced with Strawberry Chocolate truffle. I didn't get a picture of the inside, but it's pretty much the same as the strawberry, but dark brown lol And yes, the truffle was perfect for icing!!! I called strawberry chocolate because I mixed in some strawberry preserves, but honestly, I think it didn't add too much taste. I needed to have added some candy flavor maybe.
