Wow it has been a crazy year and I have not baked much lately. I went to work full time outside the home and that did not work out for my family so now I am back home. This means MORE BAKING!!! YAY!!!!
Today the Picky Palate blog posted a recipe for Biscoff Cupcakes. I had never heard of Biscoff before. Turns out that Biscoff is a spread, much the consistency of peanut butter, made up of crushed up cookies. I decided I simply MUST try this. So I did.
I am not sure how often I will make these. The frosting is so extremely sweet it made me gag. The Biscoff was a tad oily and so the frosting with all that oil + the butter was a little greasy, if that makes sense. The cake part was great but again with the oiliness of the Biscoff the bottoms of the cupcake wrappers we a bit oily looking. Also, the cakes seemed to fall a bit while cooling leaving a concave part. This could easily be hidden by the frosting but I can not imagine anyone wanting THAT much of this overly sweet frosting.
Perhaps I did something wrong.
Maybe if there was a different frosting.
Either way I am back in the baking groove and excited about it!!
I did not take pictures because they were not very pretty.
If you love SUPER sweet frosting than this is for you. If you want sweet but not a toothache then you might try substituting a different frosting. Again the cake was GREAT!!
Here is the link to Picky Palate, go check them out. It is an AWESOME blog with lots of great stuff!!
