For Valentine's Day, the Alpha Bakers are making another chocolate cake (Chocolate Pavarotti with Wicked Good Ganache) so I thought, what better accompaniment? Caramel Whipped Cream!

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a caramel "chicken." The thought of accidentally spilling boiling hot sugar on my skin scares me. Plus, caramel seems so unforgiving! Leave some sugar crystals on the edge of the pan? It's ruined. Cook it a moment too long? Ruined. It's so temperamental! But, as they say...practice makes perfect, so I guess I'll need to just keep making more and more caramel until I master it.
Here are my caramel and Caramel Whipped Cream photos:

which is then mixed into the whipped cream
|my sugar is boiling away|
|cream has been added|
|then butter is added|
|and it's stirred until blended|
|the melted cocoa powder is added to the caramel|
|and then the chocolate-caramel mixture is added to softly whipped cream|
|and it's beaten until stiff...so delicious!|
Bye for now...
