I have to admit, these photos were partially an excuse to try out my new tripod. Wow - how did I make it this long without one? It makes such a difference - especially when shooting in low light, as I often do.
|Gotta love Betty Crocker (devil's food cake mix)!|
|To create a space for the Nutella, I cut a cone shaped piece out of the top of each cupcake - and then cut off the tip of each cone.|
|Next, I filled up each hole with a dollop of Nutella.|
|Then, the cones get placed back on the cupcakes (ideally, each back to its original cupcake, since the cone shapes are not going to be perfect circles).|
|The chocolate ganache frosting was a little too liquid at first, so I followed the instructions and let it cool and then whipped it to create more of a frosting consistency.|
Since Nutella is not for everyone (how could it not be!?), I made a dozen plain chocolate cupcakes topped with cream-cheese frosting.
|Snazzy decorations from Williams Sonoma.|
|All packed up, and ready to go!|
