The Ultimate Truffle Cupcake experience begins with the smell – as the cupcake comes close to your sniffer, a waft of truffle – the fungi kind – hits you hard (Yes, I called it a sniffer; I have a five month old.). You begin to wonder, “Is this a dessert or an Italian entree?” As you take a bite, you reach the rich dark chocolate first. The truffle flavor isn’t quite as strong as you would have guessed. Then, the cake itself makes you pause. You realize that while it’s a chocolate cake, it’s clearly sweetened with honey. It starts to feel like comfort food. But, wait… there is that truffle flavor making it different than anything you’ve ever tasted before. Did you save the chocolate truffle on top as a chaser? It’s not in a box, so you don’t know what the flavor is. Here goes nothing… oh yeah!!

Cupcake Project newbies may not realize that all of the photos here are taken by my Valentine, Jonathan.

Pollack Photography on Facebook. Be sure to tell him I sent you!
