So, I bake for a hobby and I just spent my entire Friday night baking cupcakes. Hehe 🙂 They are chocolate fudge cake with (eggless) Cookie Dough Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Then I put some chocolate chip cookies, mini chocolate chips and a chocolate ganache drizzle on top!
If you haven’t tried Swiss Meringue Buttercream, PLEASE DO! It is so much better than the American Buttercream which is basically all sugar. SMB is much more delicate and light. I love it 🙂 But anyways, I just wanted to show off these little beauties after slaving away all night in my kitchen!

Thank you ladies!! 🙂
@bluegreenjean: What kind of party is it?
@ccantics: Of course you can have the recipe! I got the inspiration from: http://www.woodlandbakeryblog.com/chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-brownies/
I used a WASC cake recipe, but you can use just a plain ole cake box. I do recommend using Duncan Hines, they always seem to make the most moist cupcakes! The link above will give you the recipe for the eggless cookie dough and how to incorporate the dough into the buttercream.
As for the buttercream, I’ve always followed this tutorial and my SMB comes out perfect everytime! I halfed the recipe because it does make a lot. Here’s the link for it: http://sweetapolita.com/2011/04/swiss-meringue-buttercream-demystified/
Then I just used some cookies I already had baked and cut them into little triangles, melted some chocolate and heavy whipping cream for the ganache and drizzled it over them! It is a very time consuming process, but I think it’s totally worth it! My Fiance loved them and my Future Brother-In-Law even came over in the middle of his shift (he’s a cop) to grab some! 🙂 🙂
