This one's for Mom...

Last week, while we were getting ready to leave for the day, the bakers and I had a chat that went something like this:

Anna: "What are we going to make for next months feature flavour?"
Me: "I dunno"
Anna: "We should make something that Mom's will enjoy- it's mothers day in a couple of weeks!"
Me: "What do Mom's like? Mine likes everything..."
Anna: "Chocolate!"
Emily: "Also Raspberry. Chocolate and raspberry is a delish combo"  
Me: "Sounds yummy"
Emily: "Also, there should be ganache in it."
Me: "Sounds even better"

This is how we came to the conclusion that this month we would make a cupcake that mom's everywhere would be grateful for. The only other decision to make was where the raspberries would go, and where the chocolate would go. After all, some Mom's like chocolate but LOVE raspberries and some mom's like Raspberries but die for chocolate... So... we made both! All month we're featuring chocolate cupcakes with raspberry ganache and raspberry frosting AND raspberry cupcakes with raspberry ganache filling and chocolate frosting. Here is a list of 3 things I have realized since tasting these cupcakes:

1. Our chocolate cake with our raspberry frosting is my new favourite flavour combo. 
2. The raspberry ganache we are making for the filling is the yummiest ganache I have ever had. 
3. I have an amazing amount of self control. 

We hope your mom loves these as much as we do. I should also quickly note that dads, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends would also enjoy these a ton! 

Happy Mothers Day!
