Summer Frosting

For Father's Day we made Keith chocolate cupcakes. I wasn't in the mood for the heavy buttercream frosting though, I wanted something a little lighter.

So I tried whipped cream frosting, and it was really, really delicious. Def. very light and summery!

Whipped Cream Frosting

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup chocolate ganache
Cocoa powder, to dust

mix up your ganache, then beat your cream till it almost reaches firm peaks (if you beat it till it reaches firm peaks, it will take on a curdled appearance as you work in the chocolate.)

Chocolate Ganache Filling

1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

1/4 c. heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla extract

(i made all this ganache and then filled the cupcakes with what I didn't use for the frosting-otherwise maybe halve this if just using for frosting)
