Toutes Fraises - 2.5 stars strawberry cupcakes, strawberry cream cheese frosting - so sad, I think the directions on this one weren't clear enough. I think the instructions led to overmixing which hurt the texture of the cupcakes - and next time I will add more strawberries. Also the temp might be a misprint. I would like to try these again but they weren't good enough for me to make it a priority.

Dame Chocolat - 3.4 stars flourless chocolate genoise, cocoa soaking syrup, semisweet chocolate mou
