White Chocolate Sour Cream Ganache

  Posted by ycknits I've seen comments in forum entries about how to make white chocolate ganache using sour cream instead of whipping cream. I searched every which way, but could not come up with the ratio. So, after digging around on the web and finding small quantity recipes, here is what I came up with for a larger batch. It doesn't even require measuring the ingredients. I prefer this recipe to standard white chocolate ganache because it is not so sweet (and so delicious that you will want to eat it with a... read more

Christine's Orange Dreamsicle Cupcakes

  Posted by LoveonCloudCupcake Everyone loves the ice cream bars? Am I right? Or am I right? Creamy vanilla and fresh orange just go together like peas and carrots, peanut butter and jelly, rice and chicken…you get my drift. These were amongst my first cupcake recipes. I tried a from "scratch" orange cake and they were basically corn muffins. I was not pleased. So for Super Bowl Sunday I made these, but at the time with just an orange cake mix and nothing else.
