Swiss Miss Cupcakes

cupcake

I have often day-dreamed about opening a coffee & cupcake shop! But until then I will just have fun filling my Saturday afternoons with cupcake baking. (; My sweet Washington friend was married today but due to distance and work we sadly couldn’t attend the wedding so we celebrated with cupcakes! Plus, I like to make the kids “valentine’s treats” a bit early. I thought perhaps I would make Vanilla Cupcakes but then I had an idea pop into my head. Swiss Miss Cupcake! 🙂 I used to love swiss miss rolls way back but haven’t had one for years and the combination as a cupcake sounded too good to be true! So, a delightful combination of rich chocolate cake, cream filling, a thin layer of chocolate ganache, and finish of this combination with a cream cheese frosting! I know, y’all are thinking “wowza, that’s too rich!” Well, you will just have to give them a try and see for yourself!
