Chai Latte C*O*W

Today's C*O*W is Chai Latte with White Chocolate Cinnamon Buttercream frosting. I thought they'd be so cute in their little red Asian-inspired wrappers with golden dragons. I sprinkled gold metallic sprinkles on top to match, but I'm dissapointed in the sprinkes. They look gold and sparkly in the bag! It's always something . . . .

The cupcakes were dipped in homemade caramel before frosting them I am keeping my fingers crossed that the icing doesn't slide off the caramel overnight on on the drive to work. It seemed to set up, but you never know. You can almost see the caramel in the photo if you look closely (and know what you're looking for).

Strawberry Field C*O*W

After not baking COWs for 2 weeks, I sort of struggled with what to do this week. I wanted to use my strawberry filling, so that pretty much made the decision simple.
So, I present to you this week's COW. Strawberry cake with strawberry filling piled high with vanilla buttercream icing. Sort of simple, but there you go!
I am liking these Debbie Meyer pans less and less with each use. Even with lowering my baking temp to 325 degrees, they still seem to burn the bottoms! I am convinced it is the dark surface of the pans. If I could only get the indentation gizmo to fit other pans, I'd be a happy baker.
