Heather of Sherry Trifle chose this week's TWD recipe: Chocolate gingerbread. I was in a cupcake kind-of-a-mood and decided to whip up a dozen of these. I followed the recipe to a "T" and topped each cupcake with brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream and garnished with crystallized ginger. These were fun, cute and not overly sweet. Although the ginger smelled extremely potent, the taste was not overwhelmed by ginger at all. The cake was light with a touch of density to it and the suspended chopped bittersweet chocolate pieces throughout made this cupcake a real treat. For the recipe, go to Jessica's blog here.
