150g Caster Sugar

1tsp Baking Powder

Pinch of salt

120g Unsalted Butter (softened)

120g Milk 

80g Egg Mix (see notes)

2g Vanilla Flavouring

Ganache Icing

340g Dark Callebaut Chocolate (melted)

240g Cream microwaved 

Decoration

Freeze-dried Raspberry Crumble

100g White Callebaut Chocolate (tempered)

Equipment needed:

Mini Cupcake Cases

Method

1. To start, make the ganache by heating the cream in the microwave until hot. Melt the chocolate and stir into the hot cream until well combined and set aside.

2. For the cupcakes, combine all dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Mix in softened butter with a paddle attachment until a crumb forms.

3. Weigh out the egg mix, milk and vanilla flavouring and slowly stream into the mixer, giving it time to mix in each bit as you go.

4. Continue mixing for 2 minutes or until there are no lumps in the batter.

5. Evenly distribute the batter between the mini cupcake cases, fill them close to the top but not full.

6. Bake cupcakes for 12 minutes at 150 degrees, take out when done and leave out to cool.

7. While waiting for the cupcakes to cool, temper the white chocolate and transfer to a piping bag.

8. Pipe out 45 small dog bone shaped decorations.

9. Once the ganache has cooled down, it can be whipped in the mixer using a paddle attachment.

10. When the ganache is light and fluffy, transfer it into a piping bag with a star tip nozzle and pipe onto the cupcakes. Top off with a raspberry crumble and a chocolate decoration.

Tips

1. For extra flavour, jam and other fillings can be added in the center.

2. Flour can be substituted for Gluten Free flour. 

Notes

To create the egg mix, simply mix two eggs together and whisk with a fork, weigh what you need.

Marshmallow Fluff

Marshmallow Fluff

Ingredients

200g caster sugar
100ml water
250g glucose
3 large egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

1. Combine the caster sugar and water in a small saucepan, making sure all is mixed together well, then add glucose on top. Wash down the sides of the saucepan with a wet pastry brush to remove any stray sugar crystals.   

2. Combine the egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean bowl of a stand mixer. Start cooking the syrup over a medium-high heat. Insert a candy thermometer and set to 115C. 

3. Start whisking egg white on high when sugar syrup reaches 108C. The egg whites should be whipped by the time the syrup reaches 115C.   

4. Once syrup has reached 115C, remove from heat.  Slowly stream a steady thin ribbon of  syrup into the fluffy egg whites while the mixer is running on a medium speed, taking care not to pour directly on to the whisk attachment.  

5. Let the mixer run for 5 or so minutes until the fluff is thick and glossy.  Add desired flavour, briefly combine and remove from the mixer. 

6. Scoop into a clean air tight container, and enjoy for up to two weeks! The fluff can be re whipped by hand if it becomes flat over time.  

Tips

Flavours such as peppermint or strawberry make for a wonderful substitution to the vanilla. Perfect for making quick and easy smores, or for dolloping on top of your favourite dessert. Layer in a jar with pieces of your favourite chocolate bark for a beautiful gift idea.
