|Expresso Yo Self Cupcakes|
I made these last week for a friend who hosted a soiree for friends and a few members of our symphony who sang and performed a bit.
I bought the Hazelnut Butter at Food Fight Grocery when I visited in Portland a month ago - lord knows it would not be available here in Bumbershoot, Alaska. But that's ok, because freeways and serial killers aren't available here, either.
Seriously, the addition of a savory touch to a cupcake or any cake is the way to go, in my opinion. Otherwise things tend to get too overwhelmingly sweet and cloying - kind of like that big bosomed aunt who would bury your face in her chest and suffocate you with talc powder when you were young - oh wait, that's me!
The recipe for the cupcakes, icing and Hazelnut Mousse is on my Fat Ass Recipes page.
