Doktorhut-muffin (2)Its more then a year since we had the last PhD-Party. Thats more than enough time to collect new ideas for the Doctor cake. And its nearly one year ago that I saw this beautiful muffins with graduation cap decoration at Tastespotting.

And at this time I made a note for myself that for the next disputation I would bake this kind of muffins. And this week one of our colleagues got her PhD and it was time for party and and for graduation cap muffins.

I made some changes and decided to use small waffle cookies to create the caps. And preparing the caps was really simple. I dipped the round cookie in some molten chocolate, place it on the flat and square one, let dry a little bit, then turn them around and place some liquorice and a small chocolate lentils on the top. I prepare all of the caps at the weekend and stored them in the cookie jar (I also threaten the boyfriend that something really mean would happen to him if he eat one of them 😉 ). The evening before the party I bake the muffins using this recipe. After they cooled down I top them with some molten chocolate and place the caps on then. For transporting them to the lab I stored them in some tin jars and luckily all of them survived travelling with train fine.

    ich hab zur Doktorfeier meines Sohnes die Dokterhutmuffins gemacht und sie waren der Renner bei dem Apéro,
    Da ich ca 50 Muffins brauchte habe ich aus Zeitgründen fertige kleine Muffins (Magdalenas) im Supermarkt gekauft, diese mit Schokoglasur überzogen oder mit Puderzucker bestäubt. In “Gratulations” Papierchen gesetzt und sie sahen einfach super aus.
    Die Vertiefung für die Waffelröllchen habe ich mit einem Apfelentkerner ausgestochen.

    Ist ja tooooooll!!! Ganz herzlichen Dank für diese goldige Idee. Ich werde sie als “Platzkarten” für die Doktorfeier meiner Tochter machen.

    Die sehen ja cool aus!! Und viel echter als die Originalmuffins! Für die Optik würde ich die Lakritze drauf auch verschmerzen. Obwohl… ich würde sie wohl jemandem anderen abtreten 😉

      @ la grosse mere: Danke für das Lob 😀 Ich habe meine Lakritze an die frischgebackene Frau Doktor abgetreten 😉
