More Snow in Dallas

Originally uploaded by mzones
Woohoo! It's snowing again. We started out the day with a nice rain, then mid-day it turned to snow mixed with rain. Now, it's all snow. Maybe "they" were correct to warn us in the 70's of another ice age. ;-)

White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for a friend that I met on the set of The Imposter. She wanted to have some special desserts for a family gathering today and called me up yesterday. The cake part is white chocolate, and the frosting is white chocolate buttercream. I topped the cake with crushed raspberries, then piped on some buttercream and put a whole raspberry on the top of each little one. If I had a block of white chocolate, I'd make some chocolate curls to garnish, but alas I don't and so will just leave well enough alone.

She also wanted a Chocolate-Ancho Torte so I baked that off yesterday too and then poured chocolate-ancho ganache over it this morning. I made some Kahlua Creme Anglaise for her to serve with it.

Wonder which dessert will disappear the quickest.

That's global warming for you.
