Chocolate Rum Cupcakes

Happy Halloween weekend!

In spirit of Halloween and for a work potluck tomorrow, I made these chocolatey cupcakes. They’re filled with a light chocolate mousse and glazed with a dark chocolate rum ganache. I also added a bit of Captain Morgan spiced rum to the cupcake batter, but the rum flavor is subtle since I was experimenting and only added a small amount.  Next time I’ll know to add a bit more rum for a kick.

To make these cupcakes more playful, I made these little ghosts as toppers (all edible!).  I hope they’re a hit tomorrow at work!

Happy Halloween and be safe!

Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake

The last time I made a chocolate mousse cake, I discovered how much I liked chocolate mousse, so I decided to make a similar one.  But this time around, I filled the center of the cake with strawberry slices, which I picked up the day before at the farmer’s market.

I made this to give to my friend, who was having her birthday celebration at a clubhouse. She’s a big chocolate fan, so when she saw the cake, she was very surprised.

Topped with fresh strawberries. Lightly drizzled with caramel sauce.
