Yup. That's right. BonJovi cupcakes. HubbyDear's co-workers requested chocolate cupcakes decorated with a BonJovi theme for one of them. Seriously. My mind went . Just like that.
I've known about this for a few months, so I've had time to obsess … to no avail. Sadly, I resorted to rather "boring" decorations. I really like to make my own decorations, but this one just didn't happen for me. We raided Country Kitchen for basic Rock & Roll themed decorations.
To make up for it, I'm making Nutella cupcakes instead of plain chocolate cupcakes. I've been anxious to do a filled cupcake since my class. I have the filling tip! I want to use it! :)
TWO containers of Nutella later … mmmm!
I used Jamie's Nutella cupcake directions that included my go-to chocolate cake for the cupcake and Nutella Buttercream. OH. MY. <insert multitudes of heavenly angels singing>
|Epic Fail Using the Filling Tip|
As for the filling tip, I don't know if I'm just a wimp and couldn't squeeze the Nutella through it, but I could NOT fill those cupcakes! I ended up using a regular frosting tip #8 instead and treated it the same as if I were using the filling tip - pushing it into the cupcake center and filling until the top swelled a bit. It was kindof amazing that I jar of Nutella was EXACTLY the right amount for 24 cupcakes!
Now, as for the Nutella buttercream frosting … let me repeat: OH. MY. <there go the angels again!>
And the Nutella cupcakes have been proclaimed by hubby's office as the best cupcakes yet!
