These particular ones were for a birthday gift box for a young lady who was turning 21 & celebrating with a lovely meal at a local Italian restaurant Sorbellos, what a great dessert for everyone!
I was told that she wanted something with lots of chocolate & that her favorite chocolate was Cadburys Coconut Rough so these were my creations, what do you think?
The cake for the cupcakes was 'Midnight Delight' (dark chocolate mud cake), I frosted them with a rich chocolate ganache buttercream using real melted chocolate of course. Next I topped them all with a really generous amount of large chunks of Cadburys Coconut Rough & a sprinkle of white sugar crystals.
The crowning glory for each cupcake was a beautiful individual Ferrero Raffaello chocolate (which consists of an almond surrounded by a soft cream, wrapped in a coconut wafer shell and coated in coconut), & as if that wasn't enough I thought a final drizzle of rich chocolate ganache is never a bad thing is it?
Go one then, just one more close up.....
