We didn't think it could get any better than cupcakes laden with buttercream icing until we saw these dark chocolate ganache-dipped cupcakes. Dripping in rich, velvety layers of ganache, these cupcakes are then topped with iced on Christmas shapes like trees and snowflakes for a festive flair.
Maki Evans of Cupcakes Gourmet shows us an easy way to make chocolate ganache with both dark and white chocolate. After baking the cupcakes she tops them with a dollop of buttercream, or you can use your favorite icing. She then dips the cakes in the ganache to create a rich, luscious coating. Using candy decorations, she gives her baked goods a special holiday touch.
