Chocolate Cheesecake - CUPCAKE OF THE MONTH

Chocolate Cheesecake
It's been baking crazy here!!! I made the YUMMY Chocolate Cheesecake Cupcakes and handed them out as samples for some taste testers... Nothing but great reviews :) Cupcake of the Month for January!!
Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake
I also made another variation of that... Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake... Devils food with a cheesecake filling and a strawberry buttercream!! :)
My other cupcake experiment was a Butter Rum Pecan Cupcake... Butter Pecan cake with a Rum buttercream. (theres also a splash of rum in the cake as well) Good things so far!!

Butter Rum Pecan
This evening I was taking a look at the cake pop baking pan that my mom got me for Christmas... Ive never really been a cake pop fan... everyones doing those damn things. I took a look in my cabinet and found a mix for Pumpkin bread! I whipped that together in the KitchenAid and filled up the little cups of the pan... when they came out I rolled them in cinnamon, sugar, and some spices and called them a donut hole!! :) They taste pretty yummy... nothing special on my part just a Pillsbury quick bread mix I had on hand... but they'll make a cool breakfast treat for the X man in the morning... Cake for breakfast?! sure!! lol
But anyway-- as those were baking I was pondering in the kitchen...............................
WLS friendly Protein Cake Pops!!    Protein Donut Holes!!!   Protein Truffles!!
all would be sugar-free of course but full of yumminess!! We shall see what I can come up with on those... but the idea sounds/looks great in my head lol.

Monsters, Monsters, Monsters this weekend! Xyander's Monster Party is this Saturday... Getting life together for that.. Gotta hit up Michaels for cake decorating things for the kiddies and stickers and such for the craft projects!!! *cross my fingers* that we can pull this off with all of these people in our apartment!!!

until next time....
