  1. That sounds like a very frustrating day, definetely worthy of a pecan pie filled chocolate cupcake 🙂

    Utterly delicious! I guess, the best thing that happened to you last weekend could be these cute tasty cakes!

  3. marymtf says:

    Ouch! I occasionally bite my cheek. Then, as if fate was conspiring to get me, I bite it again an hour later.
    I’m glad about the sprinkles. It reminds me of my childhood. Luckily I get to relive it with the grandsons. 🙂

  4. Angie you and your family definitely deserved these cupcakes after your ordeal! 🙂 Gosh they look delicious with the pecan pie filling inside them! How do you come up with these great ideas? Probably while you were waiting patiently for the guy and your oven to show up? ha ha at least you made good use of the time! 🙂

    • Remember my “failed” PecChoc cake? I thought I’d recreate that in cupcake size, since we really liked the way it tasted. That was the inspiration behind these cupcakes. Turns out pecan pie filled cupcakes are not new after all. There are many versions online. But the white chocolate mousse frosting is uniquely mine, hehe…so good! 🙂

    I really didn’t think one could EVER improve on pecan pie. I mean, it’s pecan pie, after all. But this? This is genius. Pure genius.

  6. How do you do it everytime? Such complex recipes, incorporated with so much finesse n recorded to the point. Beautiful n flavorful recipe post ❤️

  7. I totally agree with Sonal… I tell you, I’m start thinking that you are a kind of super hero with some special power… I can’t wait to see what you will make with the new oven! The oven guy should shovel even your garden in retribution!

    what a lush treat – perfect! Yes, I had when delivery guys have no clue about timing – many’s the time I have sat home literally all day to get a phonecall at 5pm saying they won’t be coming #rude

  9. these look AMAZING! thanks for sharing 🙂

  10. chefjulianna says:

    Oh Angie, I have been through that with the delivery guys too! What the heck is that with the 5 hour window for delivery?? Well, at least you got to eat cupcakes – and very gourmet cupcakes, I might add! Huh, maybe you should have bribed the delivery man with the cupcakes!! 😀

  11. Beautiful cupcakes! And good luck getting the oven, hope it stops snowing soon…

  12. Talk about a surprise inside of a cupcake. Wow! These look so good!

  13. Jhuls says:

    That was really upsetting, Angie. I am glad you made these cupcakes to cheer you up. When something upsets me, I always eat – eat like ‘stress eating’. These cupcakes, no wonder, could definitely make anyone’s day. I hope your oven would be delivered soon. 😉

  14. Boo about your new oven – exciting that you’re eventually getting one though!
    These cupcakes totally make up for the lack of new oven, they look so good – like insanely good!!

    I hope you get your oven soon! My mom is visiting me from the northeast, and the moment she arrived we had our first snow in three weeks. (I’m thinking she’s Queen Elsa.) BUT, I’m glad you made cupcakes with your time inside. They look delicious too! Hope you have a fantastic weekend. 🙂

    • Thanks, Kaila! Hahah…your mom is Queen Elsa, she brought the snow with her! But not enough! We still have plenty here! Can’t wait for all of it to melt away and I can see green on my lawn once again! 🙂

  16. OH MY!!!! speechless. two of my favorites, chocolate cupcakes, pecan pie, ok make it three white chocolate mousse. Angie, incredible. I am going to assume the saga of the stove delivery had a happy ending.

  17. Loretta says:

    ….. and what a sweet-filled ending to some of your woes that day! Gorgeous photos and cupcakes! You’ll love your stainless steel oven, we just replaced ours a few months ago, it also has a convection feature that I’m trying out.

  18. your cupcakes look so utterly perfect before you core them i dont know how you do it . These are to die for, well not literally but wow, pecan, my fav, could i have a plate pelase? x

  19. Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook says:

    Dow! I totally just posted my comment to this post on the wrong page, I get click-happy and this is what happens! Ignore me, and feel free to delete that mishap of mine! To sum up my thoughts, these cupcake are to die for, and that delivery guy is not! Enjoy having an oven again, it’s torture without one isn’t it?!

  20. Jim in IA says:

    Obviously, that is the only appropriate way to deal with disappointment.

    Well played.

  21. katylallanby says:

    How do you get your frosting so perfect?! Mine never stays stiff enough to pipe, except when it’s too stiff and won’t come out of the piping nozzle! These look gorgeous – definitely going to give these a go. Can’t believe the delivery man though!

    • Whipped cream frosting is the easiest for me. Soft and easy to pipe. Refrigerate for a few hours if it’s too soft to pipe or you may need to whip more. I hope you’ll give it another try. I may update the recipe with more photos, so you can see how the frosting looks. ??

  22. Hard to believe what happened to you – not liable? Great picker-upper to make cupcakes and with a different twist or I should say filling! Looks delicious 🙂

    • He didn’t exactly use the word liable. He gave me a song and a dance, but basically that was what he said. He didn’t seem too eager to do the job. I think he was actually glad I refused delivery. Can’t blame him really, it was snowing and cold! 🙂 But the new oven is safely installed now and I’m a happy camper!

  23. Lily says:

    Oh Angie, you had me at pecan pie. What a fabulous idea combining a chocolate cupcake with sweet pecan pie filling and then to top it off with white chocolate mousse, yummy!

  24. OMG! Beautiful photo and wonderful recipe!

  25. Love how you tell the story, even though sorry you didn’t get the oven (though made sense to turn away, what a strange thing to not be liable?!) but what yummy looking cupcakes to get over it!

    • I know, right? If he drops the oven, how’s that not his responsibility? He wasn’t happy to deliver in the snow, I think, but why did he not cancel then? Can’t understand some people. Maybe his boss made him. Anyway, 2 different guys came today and my new oven has already produced fluffy little cakes I made at midnight! 😀

      • Hooray! Ha, ha, if only I could have your energy to cook at midnight with a new oven (once upon a time it wold have been no problem, but not these days, with a toddler who wakes me most nights!)

  26. Sorry you didn’t get your new oven, but these look like they’ll help lessen the disappointment 🙂 They look amazing!

    • Got them today, Natalie! Oven & microwave both. At first I was too afraid to use them. Didn’t want to get them dirty, lol! But then I took the plunge and made little cakes. Came out perfect! 🙂

  27. Jaw-droppingly droolicious cupcakes Angie!! That filling…OMG! Hope you get the new oven soon!!

  28. OMG! Are you covered is cuts and bruises now then??? And you reminded me of when my husband used to talk me to sleep at night 😉
    I’d be so frustrated about the oven, I hope it all gets sorted soon, in the meantime, fab cakes, superstar xx

  29. Shari Kelley says:

    I love, love, love cupcakes, Angie, and boy does this one look good! Pecan pie filling in a cupcake sounds amazing. And I like that you have lots of frosting – my favorite part! I really wish you delivered!:)

  30. Hilda says:

    You certainly know how to bounce back when the going gets tough. These cupcakes look like a great way to deal with the disappointment.

  31. Suchitra says:

    Very interesting cupcakes! I wish I could take pictures like yours!

  32. Angie, these cupcakes looks so amazing 🙂 I’m ashamed to say until now I don’t know how to use a piping bag, this is always a disaster 🙁 Have a wonderful weekend xx

  33. I love this! Very interesting cupcake. But what i liked the most is the frosting recipe. White chocolate is my faaav. I will definitely make this one. 🙂

  34. Arl's World says:

    I am in love with these little cupcakes! They look delicious! So pretty, well done!

  35. Wow – what a week. Hasn’t this winter been ridiculous? ENOUGH happened quite a while ago. The cupcakes are gorgeous. You go to such much effort in your kitchen. Can’t imagine what will happen once you have a new stove and microwave. 😉

    • They’re here, the stove and microwave! They have a few features the old ones didn’t have, so I’m thinking I’ll be able to do a lot more. Except I’m too afraid to use them since I don’t want to get them dirty, lol! ??

  36. This is confusing: I thought cupcakes were flat. Yet, these look majestically domed. I’d be more than happy with the plain ones. Although, hold on, I happen to love pecans. Such a shame they’re hideously expensive over here.
    – And you sent the guy packing! I’m guessing you don’t need a guard dog…

    • I’ve made some that are flat, some not so flat ?. I prefer them to be kinda mounding a little. Then put even more mounding frosting! ?

      Pecans are not cheap here, either, but if you buy them in bulk, you can get them at a decent price. Want me to send you some?

  37. What a week! Is it bad that i laughed out loud at the tripping over curtains. Not because i don’t love you, but because it’s something I would do. The louder the racket the better. But wow re these cupcakes! I don’t think i’d bounce back with something like this. I’d probably feel sorry for myself and make kale and eggs wishing you were there to make me some beautiful pastry and photograph it like a champ 🙂 Gorgeous. Seriously.

    • Kale and eggs sound awesome right now, actually! If only my brain works this way every time! But the stuff I crave the most is mostly junky, bad-for-you foods! Especially when I’m under a lot of stress ?. Today was pretty stressful, with the ovens being delivered and installed and I was trying to make appetizers & salad for dinner with friends. Guess what my snack of choice was? Ben and Jerry’s ??

  38. Qin says:

    Filled cupcakes! What a gorgeous idea! I love it, Angie! Thanks for the great inspiration. 🙂 Best, Qin

  39. Oh my goodness, that looks so delicious!! Cool idea! I made two dozen German chocolate cupcakes on Friday, they are gone already! I am going to try your recipe this week!

    • I love German chocolate cake! Well, anything with chocolate ?. This one is a good basic chocolate cake recipe. I did reduce the sugar and butter to accommodate for the extra calories from the filling & frosting. Still came out excellent! If you don’t count calories, you probably can add veg oil to make them extra moist. Let me know what you think! The filling & frosting are to die for!

  40. So this is how you get stuff inside cupcakes! I had no idea, although I certainly feel smarter now. These look glorious and I do hope your new oven arrives soon and more timely. Then again, if this is the way you pacify yourself, maybe I’d be ok with it happening again.

    Beautiful cupcakes.

    • Thanks, Meghan! I tend to go for sweets & chocolate when under stress ?. But the new ovens are here! I’m in love! Though now I’m stressing out about them getting dirty! Guess it means more chocolate, lol!!

Talk to me, people!
