Truffles and Ruffles
I don't know about you but I am mightily partial to a dark chocolate truffle. Very often my shopping expeditions include a stealthy visit to Koko Black for one or two treats of melt-in-the-mouth chocolate goodness. I decided to design a chocolate truffle inspired cupcake for an adults only birthday party I was asked to supply cakes for. The resultant cakes are dark and chocolatey, mildly spiked with coffee liquer to give them a real grown up flavour. These are Dark Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes with 70% Cocoa Chocolate Buttercream Frosting and decorated with handmade sugar peonies and white chocolate lattices.
