Smore's Cupcakes

 These look so good! From our new favorite food blog.

Smore’s Cupcakes
Makes 24
Devil’s Food cake:
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup cake flour
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1 cup low fat buttermilk
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup strong brewed coffee
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate, melted
1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
marshmallow meringue frosting:
4 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup superfine sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ (4.4 ounce) Hershey bars, broken into 24 pieces
3 graham crackers, cut into 24 pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Place all the ingredients for the cupcake batter into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until fully combined.
3. Line a cupcake tin with liners and fill each about ½ way full.
4. Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean when inserted into the center.
5. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
6. Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in an electric stand mixer fixed with a whisk attachment.
7. Beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until light and frothy.
8. Begin adding the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until fully incorporated.
9. Add the corn syrup and vanilla and beat until the mixture has become glossy and fluffy and stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes. (if you think the mixture looks glossy but soupy, keep beating!)
10. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip and pipe over the cooled cupcakes.
Note: If you don’t want to beat the frosting for a long time, you can shorten the whipping time by dissolving the sugar and lightly whipped egg whites over a double boiler before adding the mixture to a stand mixer.

Topsy's Roost

 We were asked to help with this years Gala event for the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco, the theme is Playland at the Beach circa 1920's-30's we found these images of Topsy's Roost while researching playland. This place looks like it was AMAZING!
More to follow on the Gala!

George Whitney opened Topsy’s Roost in 1929 and it soon became San Francisco’s most favorite spot at Playland-at-the-Beach. Driving south along the beach from the Cliff House, the first building you came to was Topsy’s Roost, a very popular Chicken Dinner House and Nightclub. You could dance to a live orchestra and there was seating on the main floor as well as the balcony. If you were sitting on the balcony level and you wanted to dance, there were slides to take you right down onto the dance floor.
