Buche de Noel

First buche de noel of the season! Chocolate-almond sponge cake rolled around raspberry buttercream and frosted with dark chocolate ganache. Decorated with meringue mushrooms, holly berries, buttercream snow, chocolate curl "leaves", and powdered sugar.


Chocolate-Peppermint Cupcakes

Chocolate cake with a filling of mint chocolate ganache. Frosted with peppermint buttercream and sprinkled with candy cane bits.

An earlier prototype: mini chocolate cupcakes with mint buttercream. Decorated with chocolate peppermint bark.

My cupcake army. Mwahahaha!
