Chocarama!



Can you ever have enough chocolate? This cupcake is a chocoholics dream (and quite possibly a Weight Watchers nightmare!) designed for Claire's birthday party. Claire wanted a cupcake that would double as birthday cake and dessert, something rich and velvety and pretty darned sinful. At the end of a cocktail and canape function we decided it would be nice to have a satisfying and filling cupcake to cap off the night. We decided to use 70% cocoa couveture chocolate to create this cake so that it would be as dark and lucious as can be! This is a Dark Chocolate Fudge cupcake frosted with Nutella and Dark Chocolate Ganache and topped with Chocolate Fondant and a handmade aqua sugar flower. I hope everyone left enough room for dessert!

That's so pretty! sugar flowers are the kind of thing that I'd love to learn how to master-one day! :)

I always love the sound of your cupcakes and icing choices! This sounds just perfect for a chocolate lover like me! :) I agree with Lorraine - the flowers are so pretty!
