My roommate Stephanie asked me to make some sweets for her last day of work. We decided to do something of the season, an apple spice cake with cream cheese frosting and caramel swirl, and something chocolate; chocolate cake with a Junior Mint center with chocolate ganache. The blue paisley wrappers were electric against the dark chocolate.
The cake was a new recipe I have in a cupcake book. It was a bit dry, but turned out great when heated before eating. The center melted too.
