Friday the 13th comes only a few times a year. Some of us consider it an unlucky day, or a day where frightfully awful things are bound to happen. Some of us get amped up about it and make cupcakes with Jason masks and blood spatter to celebrate. Now that's making lemonade out of lemons.
This is a chocolate stout cake, filled with fudgy ganache and spread with a thick layer of chocolate buttercream, then topped with a fondant Jason mask! I plan to eat these while watching old low-budget scary movies and drinking the rest of my 16 ounce chocolate stout. Gotta get down on Friday.
Cherry Blossom Cupcake!
Since it's Spring and all the cherry blossoms are decorating the trees looking pretty, I thought I'd make a cherry-blossom-inspired cupcake! It's an almond cake filled with cherry preserves and topped with cherry-almond icing and a marzipan flower. Clearly prettier than all of her brother and sister cupcakes on the menu. They're all jealous. She consoles them by reminding them of their other good qualities...
Happy Friday the 13th everybody!
