Hot chocolate look-a-like cupcakes from Ladybird.
“1, To make these cupcakes I first made a batch of vanilla cupcakes. Then, once cooled, I peeled off the cupcake papers.
2. I then smoothed white chocolate ganache over the sides, leaving the base and top uncovered.
3. Once the ganache had set (about 30 minutes), I attached a measured strip of white RTR fondant. The strip was wide enough to match the height of the cupcake and to give room to hold the cupcake icing to follow.
4. To attach the cup handle I lay the cupcake on their sides and attached a small strip of fondant with a little water.
5. Next I made the italian meringue icing (see below), which I coloured brown with brown food colouring.
6. I then carefully spooned the icing into the ‘cups’ and smoothed gently then topped with miniature marshmallows. “

When efforts to tighten economic and health-realted belts collide, adorable Girl Scouts lose.
It’s almost time to stock up on the iconic Girl Scout cookies this year. But because of economic concerns, 12 regional Scout councils are testing out a plan to sell only six varieties of cookies. Economically, it seems smart to keep it simple.
“Our top five varieties make up 77% of cookie sales,” Amanda Hamaker, the manager of national product sales for the Girl Scouts, told the Wall Street Journal. “The others are yummy and fun, but they’re side dressing—leaving councils with an awful lot of alternate varieties left over.” But eliminating cookie types isn’t the only way the Girl Scouts are downsizing. Last year, those sneaky Scouts reduced the quantity of cookies per box and even made certain cookies smaller.
Still available: Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Samoas (also called Caramel deLites), Lemon Chalet Cremes and Tagalongs (also called Peanut Butter Patties).
