Chocolate Whisper-Filled Cupcakes

04 June 2012

I really love cupcakes! I am sure if you follow my blog you may have noticed that! There is just something extremely delightful about a personal treat. I think its even MORE delightful that you can add ANYTHING to the basic batter and create the PERFECT breakfast lunch dinner treat! I recently bought a big bag of Cadbury Whipsers (and I am very gratefull for my American translator :) Carla from Carla's Confections who translated these into Whoppers for all my U.S readers) and had no real purpose for them, so when I started working on a REAL cool give way ( that will be unveiled next week - yey) I had some extra chocolate cake batter left over that I decided to turn into cupcakes, and had the brilliant idea to add some Whispers to the batter before baking....




The results were AMAZING! The cupcakes were dark and rich (yum) and the chocolate part of the Whispers had melted and gone all gooey *swoon* and the malt part had gone soft and, well, just totally amazing... need I say more?

I had made some Caramel Frosting for THE AMAZING GIVEAWAY next week, so I used some of it on these cupcakes - wow! The combo of Chocolate, with malted chocolate balls AND caramel....mmmmm, just delish! Anyhoo - as I mentioned, Hazel was with me and was super keen to learn to do the "M1 Twirl" - and since there is hardly anything to learn about it -I gave her a quick example and let her take over the "bag"


If you have always wondered how bakers got that fantastic twirl, or made those divine roses - REALLY its in the nozzle - and its super easy!


Hazel did a really awesome job! Well done <3 Then we topped them with a chocolate whisper "cherry" and added a few pearl sprinkles just to make them extra pretty!


P.S - thanks for the wonderful day Haz!
