We served these chocolate whipped cream cupcakes to a group of college students for dessert on Saturday afternoon. I’ll take this as a referendum on the dessert.
Clearly, they approve of the chocolate whipped cream (Shh! It’s Rich’s chocolate nondairy whipped topping). The cupcakes? Not so much.
Not sure I blame them. The only vanilla cupcakes I’ve loved have been covered, dipped and filled with icing. What about you?
Anyway, here’s the weekend menu. This was a smaller group who ate family style, so the menu is more pared down than larger weeks:
Penne in spicy marinara sauce
Sauteed green beans
Olive oil focaccia
Turkey and provolone subs
Dill pickle chips
Vanilla cupcakes with chocolate whipped cream
Harvest stuffing with apple and cranberries
Spicy potato wedges
Curried carrot and parsnips
Pumpkin-raisin bars with cream cheese glaze
on sesame kaiser rolls
Pepperoni-dill potato salad
Corn and black bean salad
Baby dill pickles
Monster Jell-O blocks
