Crème Fraîche Cupcakes-Part Huit, AKA Babies Love Cupcakes

I came into the cafe today with the intent to bake off two more cupcakes flavors. All went as planned until photo-time approached when as I picked up my camera I discovered renegade pictures on my memory stick. It seems as though a two cocoa-craven babies snuck into my cafe, each stole a set of three cupcakes and proceeded to take a nap on one of my tables. Crazy, no?

Turns out they were not the operatives I thought they were, and instead were the adorable new-born twins of my very good friends, Autumn and Dan. Autumn has seasonally helped out with Eclipse back in its infancy until the time when she lost her professional freedom to her own infancy. Here's hoping she makes a return to EC some day in the future. If I haven't said it already, she and Dan are doing a wonderful job being new parents. Congrats, guys! In a year or two we can start training those buggers to wrap chocolate bars!

Until then, here are two more Crème Fraîche Cupcakes to enjoy:

Coconut Caramel-White-crème fraîche cake+smoky caramel filling+dark chocolate ganache glaze+toasted coconut flake topping.

Lime-salted Caramel-White-crème fraîche cake+smoky caramel filling+white chocolate ganache glaze+lime-infused sea salt topping.

Roger was telling me that you were going to put caramel in the cupcakes! Yum! I'll definitely have to stop in for one of these :-)
