Oh My Ganache.

Yesterday was Tony's 40th birthday.  I asked him what kind of 'goody' he wanted me to make him.  He's a chocoholic, so I assumed it would be something up that alley.  He chose a chocolate cupcake that I make with buttercream frosting, but asked for a twist.  He wanted the cupcakes filled with ganache.  After I stopped beaming about him knowing a 'baking term' (just like he beams if I know a geek term), I got right to work.

The recipe I use for my cupcakes is a texas sheet cake.  The same one The Pioneer Woman uses.  I just fill the cupcake liners a little more than 2/3 full and bake between 18-20 minutes at 350.
