Colorado Cupcake

in search of the perfect high altitude cupcake


Chocolate Chip Cupcakes w/dark chocolate icing June 16, 2011

         This vanilla batter was sooo delicious. I could hardly keep from eating the entire bowl before I added in the whipped egg whites. I made sure the eggs were room temperature… I’ve read that makes a difference.

This dark chocolate frosting consisted of both cacao AND regular dark chocolate added to sugar. Pretty chocolatey! It doesn’t have the best consistancy if you want big frosting tops, it’s rather thick but I don’t mind that in exchange for the fudginess.

I didn’t do much for the altitude adjustment this time- I just added a bit of extra soy milk (I don’t usually use soymilk but I couldn’t find a small container of milk at Target).  I think they could have been a little more moist. Next time, I’ll have to go back and check my other posts to remember exactly what I did for the altitude as it’s been 6 months since I baked!  The photo below is the chips added to the batter. The frosting was pure melted chocolate!

Dark Chocolate Frosting.

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon boiling water
2 1/4 sticks (8 oz) butter
3/4cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 ounces best-quality semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled

I made these for the CItywide night of worship/homeless event  in downtown Colorado Springs. Hopefully I’ll get some feedback!

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks
a lot

I wanted to create you that very small observation just to give thanks as before regarding the magnificent pointers you’ve provided on this page. It was simply unbelievably generous of you to provide freely precisely what a few individuals would’ve sold as an e book to help make some bucks for their own end, precisely considering the fact that you might well have tried it in the event you desired. These tips also acted to provide a easy way to recognize that other people have the same keenness just like my personal own to figure out significantly more when considering this condition. Certainly there are thousands of more enjoyable sessions up front for those who browse through your website.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
