ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Dessert Club - CUPCAKES

It was inevitable. Cupcakes are hot. Cupcake blogs abound. Cupcakes are the perfect individual size and, in the best cases, boast obscene amounts of frosting, and sometimes filling, too. So it was inevitable.

OF COURSE Dessert Club was going to do a cupcake night. Plus they make such pretty pictures!

One of the things I love about our Dessert Club is the range of palates. People have such different tastes, so we inspire each other to try new things, and are amazed at what others achieve. Cupcake night was no exception. Behold:

White Chocolate Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

French Toast & Bacon Cupcakes (my personal favorite of the evening!)

Black-and-White Cupcakes with Truffle Topping (mine - I was a little disappointed)

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes - gorgeous!
Sprinkles Strawberry Cupcakes

French Chocolate Cupcakes with Orange-Infused Creme Fraiche (gluten-free! Unbelievable. She made the creme fraiche from scratch, a several-day process. AND she came straight from work so she brought all her components in a cooler and plated them at my house. I am taking presentation lessons from her.)

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Orange Chocolate Cupcakes (vegan!)

Coconut Cupcakes
And I am embarrassed and disappointed to tell that the evening's winner does not have a photo! She must have come after I'd done the pictures, or I got distracted and forgot! But they are on the glass pedestal in the center of the picture, and center of the group photo at top: Chocolate Souffle Cupcakes with Whipped Caramel Ganache Frosting. Phenomenal.

These all look amazing! I hope you will share the recipes. I am especially interested in the lemon meringue and the Boston creme cupcakes, as they would go over BIG in this family. Personally, the winner, chocolate souffle with whipped caramel, would probably be my personal all-time favorite.
Thanks,
Lynn
