I was in Las Vegas last weekend and happened upon The Cupcakery at the Monte Carlo. I wanted to try something new so I went for their Almond Joy cupcake - it was delicious so I decided to recreate it as soon as I got home!
My version turned out great! The Almond Joy cupcake has a coconut cake dipped in ganache and sprinkled with coconut and chopped almonds (next time I might use almond slivers) This was my first successful foray into the world of ganache - I've made it before but didn't quite like how my cupcakes looked dipped in it - this time around I got the hang of it and can't wait to use ganache again - maybe for a filling?
Have you tried any new cupcake flavors lately?
