Happy Birthday Emily Sink Wilson Cupcakes! Blackberry and chocolate for a fabulous lady!
So, most of you probably don’t realize that it’s not always the easiest to find blackberries. You would think that this time of year they would be everywhere, but NOPE. I went to 3 different grocery stores before finally finding them at Earth Fare… ahem, thanks babe!
This was one of the yummiest cupcake flavor combinations ever!
I created two different ones… chocolate cake filled with blackberry preserves topped with a blackberry vanilla buttercream and then chocolate cake filled with a chocolate/blackberry ganache topped with a dark chocolate/blackberry frosting.
I usually try my hardest to get the extras out the door, but had to keep a couple for the Dean Hizhouse that week. These were too scrumptious to pass up!
I topped most of the blackberry vanilla buttercream cupcakes with a plump sugared blackberry. Even though, it was over 100 degrees that day, they still had an awesome little crunch to them. The remaining cupcakes had a little “E” monogram for Emily aka “the best name in the whole wide world”.
I was super happy to provide cupcakes for the Sink Crew! I’ve been lucky to know this amazing family since I was 16 when I met one of my best friends in life, Miss Becca Sink now Mrs. Becca Brown.
Ahh, those were the days… of bad bangs and Mudd jeans. Bring it back.
Emily, hope you had a wonderful day! Lots of love to you and the family!
