Today I had the pleasure of creating a new cupcake flavor for the staff at Washingtonian’s Bride and Groom Magazine.   I made lightly flavored mocha cupcakes, covered them in toffee ganache,  and topped them with Mocha Italian Merengue Buttercream.  A coffee praline bean covered in chocolate adorned the top peak of each cupcake.  What to call this new creation?  Why, ‘The Washingtonian’, of course!

Along with the cupcakes, I made some custom designed cookies sporting the new cover of the upcoming issue of Bride and Groom.  Each cookie was hand painted with gold accents.   I hope the staff enjoyed the goodies.   I may have just found a great group of future taste testers!  Thank you Jill and Vanessa!
