Irish Carbomb Cupcakes and Freedom

Yes, yes St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone, but Erica and I still made these cupcakes!! They came in very handy this past weekend. We got to celebrate our friend Bill’s birthday with them, they turned out to be a good first breakfast for Saturday, they were a nice treat to take to my friend Allison and Rob’s place and they were brought to a Mad Men party by Erica! They really turned out to be one of the best cupcake recipes I have ever made. The cake recipe was very chocolatey and perfectly moist, the ganache filling really makes these cupcakes so decadent and the buttercream frosting is just SO TASTY.

I’m glad that these cupcakes have affirmed my talents with baking. But I’m also very glad something else has been affirmed recently. Sunday morning after visiting with my friends Allison and Rob, I was wondering what to do with my afternoon. I really wanted to see the Hunger Games, so I made a plan instantaneously and then five hours later my sister, my cousin, my momma and Laynie were with me in the theater! As I was leaving DC I was really struck with an epiphany- I get to do whatever I want with my time. The world is totally my oyster and one- I need to use that free time to do the best things I can and two- I should be thankful for this freedom now while I have it. I’ve been listening to some sermons recently and also have been listening to Dr.Laura.  God has really given me an awesome opportunity to do amazing things with my freedom right now and Dr.Laura is reminding me that I need to take control of my life and be accountable for all the things I want in life and how I treat people.  I’m amazed that I finally feel like I am starting the new chapter of my life. So on that note, go for the jump to see these cupcakes being made!

Here were the cakes cooling in my kitchen…

And then I scooped out the middle and squirted in this chocolate ganache!

After that was frosting time!

And Voila, one awesome Irish cupcake.

Erica and Mike and I had a great time the next day listening to all of the great Irish bands at Shamrock and I had my good share of Guinness.

Cheers to Freedom my friends!
