Today I decided to make Chocolate cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream. With the chocolate cake I substituted the hot water needed in the recipe with strong coffee. When the cupcakes were done I brushed more coffee on top of them. Basically it is a chocolate cupcake with coffee undertones. I then made a Nutella buttercream and garnished the cupcakes with Ritter Sport or Lindt chocolate hazelnut pieces.
These cupcakes were pretty good, but not exactly what I was imagining. I didn't really taste the coffee much. I did really enjoy the Nutella buttercream though! Overall these cupcakes were tasty!
This is also the first time trying out my new hot pink foil cupcake liners. I saw these at Simply Sweet bakery (the bakery I reviewed in Evans, GA). I LOVED them so I went online and found some. I got 500! These are awesome liners and soooo pretty!
|I got this book the other day at Borders (since they're going out of business, they are putting a dent in my wallet!). I really like this book. It is mainly a picture book with a couple of recipes in the back. There are a lot of great ideas in here!|
