Beautiful! is the rose bud made from icing? Or is it a real rose bud? Thanks.

We have used real rosebuds to decorate these cakes.

I also would like to duplicate this where did you get the silver balls just at like a craft store or something?

We purchased the silver balls (also known as 'silver dragees' or 'cachous') from a supermarket. You could also try a cake decorating store.

I love the idea of cupcakes for a wedding,how do you keep the cupcake paper from pulling away from the cupcake,and where can you get pretty cupcake papers?

Hi Deb,

We don't do anything special to prevent the cases from coming away from the cakes. The icing might help to hold the cases in place.

We purchase plain cupcake cases from supermarkets, and decorative cases from kitchenware or cake decorating stores. If you are unable to find nice cases in your area, they can be ordered online.

With these cupcakes how long ahead of time can you bake these?

Blogger Amanda & Debbie said...

Hi Becky,

We think you could bake and ice these cupcakes up to four days before serving.

Amanda and Debbie,

How long would you bake these cupcakes for in a fan forced oven? My oven only has a fan forced option.

Many thanks,
Lauren

Hi Lauren,

We would bake these cupcakes at 130 degrees Celsius fan-forced.

I've only just read the comments and noticed a while back that Deb asked how you stop the cake from coming away from the paper cases. I have found that if you take the cases out of the pan (muffin pan) as soon as they come out of the oven and put on a wire rack to cool that has helped as I think if you leave them in they sort of steam somehow.

Such beautiful cupcakes.
I was wondering how far in advance can the cupcakes be made and icing put on?
I was hoping to make it for a birthday and its in December so it'll be hot?

Thanks!

Could you please let me know if you have to keep cupcakes refrigerated? I would like to make them 2 or 3 days before birthday

The cupcakes could be made and iced up to four days in advance. If using simple icing, you would not need to refrigerate the cakes. If using ganache, the cakes would need to be stored in the refrigerator.

Hi, I was just wondering if this cupcake would still taste nice if i was to use a simple icing sugar recipe for the icing?

1/9/08 5:05 pm  
Blogger Amanda and Debbie said...

Yes, we think the white chocolate mud cupcakes taste nice with a simple icing (mostly icing sugar, a little water or milk, and possibly some butter).

Hi I'm Sara. I would like to know the recipie you have used for the large size cupcakes - pink icing with pink icing flower.
Thanks :)

cupcakes look beautiful, what is your recipe for the pink icing glaze? thanks.

21/10/08 3:22 pm  
Blogger Amanda and Debbie said...

To make pink glace icing for 24 large cupcakes, you will need 350g (2 1/2 cups) pure icing sugar, 30ml (1 1/2 tablespoons) milk, and food colouring. Stir the icing sugar and milk together to form a smooth, spreadable icing. Add food colouring to achieve the desired colour. If necessary, adjust the consistency of the icing by adding a little more milk or icing sugar.

These cupcakes look fantastic, would it be possible to have a ganache recipe that doesn't have sour cream

You can substitute cream for the sour cream in our white chocolate ganache recipe.

We fill each cupcake case about two-thirds full.

Hi. I want to make these for a wedding as bonbonaires using a piped ganache.

Wil lthe ganache hold its shape if its not refridgerated?

16/1/09 11:33 pm  
Blogger Amanda and Debbie said...

Hi Jess

Our white chocolate ganache will hold its shape at cool room temperature, but it will be quite soft. If the ganache were to touch the side of the box, it would probably smear.

Anonymous Sam said...

Hi , is it possible to whip the ganache once its cool so I can pipe a swirl in top?
Thanks Sam

This has become the recipe that I use when customers order WCMC (cupcakes) and I love it!!!

My only question is: do you have something just as fabulous in a Chocolate Mud Cake - I have searched and baked and not come up with anything that has that special WOW factor (like these do)...

they are beautiful! how did you make the icing flowers?

We didn't make the icing flowers; we purchased them from a cake decorating shop.

I made the cupcakes last night and it was absolutely delicious! One thing is that my cupcakes were quite pointy instead of a dome shape and it had many cracks on the top. Is there a way to make it more smooth and domed shape?thanks:)

16/10/09 11:05 am  
Blogger Amanda and Debbie said...

To the person whose cupcakes cracked: Did you bake the cupcakes in the centre of the oven at 150 degrees Celsius (not fan-forced)?

27/10/09 1:41 pm

My oven is fan forced only... what temp, how long should I bake them for? And still n the centre of the oven?

Great recipe ladies. I made these last week and blogged about them here: http://di-liciouscupcakes.blogspot.com/2010/11/spring-time-mud-madness.html

Love your site and regularly visit looking for ideas. Will be tackling the chocolate mud cakes tomorrow.

Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Just made those for a friend's wedding. I found mine to be a bit pointy at the top, so had to cut it off before icing over it. Looked beautiful & tasted fabulous.

Hi There, i love the medium cupcakes with the pink frosting. it looks similar to fondant icing. How did you get it so perfect and do you have a link to how to make good frosting/icing? i can never seem to get it that perfect.

I made these with my daughter's friends and we iced and decorated them with fondant or butter icing. They taste lovely. When we covered with fondant I put a very thin layer of the ganache first to smooth cupcakes and act as a glue. I then put my fondant through a pasta machine so it would be easier for the teenage girls to get a even finish. Raels

Hi my name is Sal,

I was wondering what is the recipe for the white chocolate buttercream frosting? Maybe for the 24 large cupcake, do you do big swirls from the edge of the case with a Pipi g bag or is it a small swirl like the main picture you have?
