So my husband is gone for 3 weeks training for his upcoming deployment… one could call these three weeks training for the Army Wives who are left at home too. It’s like a trial run for how things will be when the one man who holds our whole world together – isn’t there anymore. Last Friday night, about 20 of us Army Wives got together for an evening of food, drinks and lots of fun… just a few hours to help take our minds off our husbands being away and a chance to build community and make new friends. I wanted to bring something to the party that the women could really indulge themselves… so I made Butterfinger Cupcakes!
I used my standard dark chocolate cake recipe for the cupcake, dipped each cupcake in chocolate ganache and swirled Butterfinger buttercream on top… of course all topped with a Butterfinger egg!
I also thought I’d dress these cupcakes up for Spring! It has been sunny and 50F here the last week and it’s gotten me excited for warmer weather! Come on Spring!
