Cannoli Cream cupcakes

Growing up in an Italian family, a holiday or gathering was not complete without a box of Italian pastries and the blessed cannoli! YUM!

I have always wanted to create a cupcake that tastes like a cannoli. This cake is the closest I have ever come! White almond cake with hints of cinnamon and orange zest with a ricotta and mascarpone cheese frosting. I swirled in mini chocolate chips and some cinnamon and almond extract. I topped the cupcake with pieces of broken cannoli shell.

Martha Stewart's Cutest Cupcakes






















If there is one person I can say I look up to it's Martha Stewart. She is just brilliant. Her entertaining ideas are fun, her recipes always come out fantastic, and she is just one awesome & successful woman. This year I have decided to put a bunch of my cupcakes in the running for,
THE CUTEST CUPCAKES CONTEST 2009.

I think I have a pretty fair shot. Some of the cupcakes I have placed in the pool are: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Day of the Dead, Strawberry Jam, Pumpkin Spice, etc. I think my classic and inventive cupcakes may catch her eye. Nevertheless, I am excited to see the winners and have been most impressed by some of the entries.

CUPCAKES!!!

And while I am on the subject, go out and buy Martha's new Cupcake book. It's filled with goodness!

Harry Potter Party


I recently hosted a Harry Potter party at my home. Cauldrons were bubbling with polyjuice potion, mason jars filled with butterbeer, and our food was even themed too. For desert, I created these beauties. Devil's food cupcakes with ribbons of peanut butter frosting swirled. Each was topped with a handmade fondant pumpkin and sugar sprinkles.
