Even though *technically* St. Patrick's day was on Saturday, personally I'm observing it today :) I made these cupcakes last night to try to be festive, chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting and ganache filling:
They came out OK, but definitely on the dry side. Not sure what I did wrong. I also used a different frosting, from here... while it was tasty, it unfortunately was short in the volume department for the other recipe, so I had to skimp a little bit on each cupcake.
I also used the opportunity to try out my new mini cupcake pan... they were pretty cute, but I think I overfilled the cups because they ended up looking like popovers;)
