Happy birthday to my boss, happy birthday to my boss! Happy biiiirrrttthhhdaaay toooo BiiiiIIIIILLLL, happy birthday to YOU! Tadaaaa! *beams* Today's my boss' birthday (if you hadn't gathered that from the off key singing). So last night I whipped up some chocolate fudge cupcakes and dunked them in my new favorite icing, dark chocolate ganache.
I was going to fill them with whipped ganache, but it just didn't want to cooperate last night, so two of them are filled and the other twenty-two are not. Someone will get a surprise, I guess! :-D
I made tiny coffee cups and doughnuts for the top. We at the office loves us some G&S doughnuts and we'll often have them instead of cake for a birthday, so doughnuts were a gimme. And everyone here is addicted to the coffee, and it goes oh so well with the doughnuts, so again, another gimme. :-D Josh pointed out that the coffee was VERY dark, so veeeerrry strong. And another indication it's strong stuff?
...It stands up over the edge of the cup. Now that's a stiff drink! *ba dump CHING*
I topped 12 with the coffee cups and doughnuts, and the other 12 I topped with chopped salted peanuts. I thought it would be a nice combo with the rich chocolate ganache and cake. :-)
We eat at 10! And unlike the retirement cake, I'm going to get a piece of this!
