Don't they look like they just jumped off the pages of a whimsical children's book? Well I think so.
Was baking cupcakes for a bbq gathering with some of my old school mates from poly and thought I could experiment a little. It won't hurt anyway, I mean if the cupcakes turned out horrible, at least I won't be sued! :P
So anyway, I realised I have been baking plenty of vanilla cupcakes and no chocolate ones. Then I felt like making some, so Dot & I did a google search and found the most yummy chocolate cupcake recipe ever.
Why yummy? I totally love the texture of these cupcakes. They're springy to the touch and really soft and moist. It was just nice. I was too lazy to make some chocolate ganache so I frosted these beauties with Nutella and topped it off with a cute little 'knob'.
I'm sure it won't take long for you to guess what's that 'knob'. I think it upped the 'cuteness' of these cupcakes. I know, it's nothing compared to those elaborate and delicate designs we find on cupcakes these days. Well, I'm no cupcake queen I have to admit so I'd rather stick to simple raw designs.
They are Maltesers by the way! I think they looked good on my cupcakes - they complemented each other. The cupcakes were a hit and I baked them again the next day for another bbq I attended and whaddyaknow, they were wiped out pretty fast too!
I got the recipe from the Joy of Baking website and you can find the recipe here: Joy of Baking's Chocolate Cupcake Recipe. Simply click on that link! Have fun ya?
