The Boston Cream Pie Cupcake.
Seeing as there has been some feedback chat – both online and in my kitchen – that boston cream pie cupcakes are the delicacy of choice, I thought I would give you a wee glimpse of them. Plus, I had been dreaming about making these for ages, so it was nice to finally get an excuse to make them up and share several pictures with you.
Crème Pâtissière in the making…
This was my first time making crème pâtissière, so I stopped messing about with photos at this point. I need not have been so nervous as the minimum of whisking was required to get the smoothest of textures. I may have added a bit much vanilla, but it tasted heavenly.
Chocolate ganache is swirled on top.
I was pretty pleased with how these turned out – the flavours went brilliantly together, and once I actually bothered to let the ganache set properly, the textures were good too. I will get the recipe up before too long, but for now, I hope the pictures will tempt you along to Cameo Curio.
