Baby 04 Chocolate Oblivions (page 371) – 2 times 12 isn’t close to 41!

even a master baker can take a 100% margin of error!  the recipe ROSE’S heavenly CAKES:  Baby Chocolate Oblivions (page 371) yields 12 cupcakes, so i planned to make 2 DOUBLE recipes for my 41 people lunch party.  however, i mistakenly measured ingredients and did prep work for only 2 SINGLE recipes, so ended up with only 24 cupcakes.  i don’t feel like making my kitchen dirty again, so these are all i can take:

the rest of the people at my 41 people lunch party will need to do by somehow else . . . only a master baker can get away with this saying!  stay tuned.

p.s. add 2 drops of La Cuisine’s french chocolate arome to the melted chocolate.  this brings heaven one level higher . . .

    Oh no. Too bad you measured wrong. They look so beautiful and perfect though! I wonder what you will serve for the rest of the people? Or did you simply have 2 people share a cupcake?

    Hector, You are such a hoot! I Never don’t feel like baking…but I often can’t bear to dirty up the kitchen!!! Sometimes my “mis en place” takes up the end of the table for two days before I start my take!

      Having neck pain today after baking 2 dozen yellow butter cupcakes yesterday to complete this take! But I am utterly satisfied with the result.

    Hector, First feel better…I notice that your cupcake papers are not lined with paper cups. is that to make the unmolded little cakes sharper,i.e. more defined; like when we use Nordicware bundt pans? Rose used a silicone mold but I need more portability and traveling with them still protected by liners seem like the way to go. Thanks in advance.

      P, this is a very liquid oily batter, I think would desintegrate paper liners or make them look oily wet which isn’t attractive. I am not removing the oblivions from the foil cups nor plating individually, that would mean neck surgery! Also I don’t think the foil liners would unmolding nicelly, but designed for peel and eat.

    Thanks Hector,
    Peel and eat is fine for our vacation destination which also increases their shelf life a bit…yea! Your are so even and beautiful!

      P, even? Because I fill them by weight and in grams. There is no better way. Use a large piping bag with a large opening.
