I have made these a few times now, and they are always popular. They are a chocolate/coffee flavoured cupcake with coffee flavoured buttercream.  Now, I don’t drink coffee, but I really love these. They are delightfully delicious, without being rich or heavy. They really are one of those things you bite into and think, “WWWWwwhhhattt?!” Yeah, you should try them. 🙂

The recipe is from a book called Love Bakery. Here it is direct from the source. If you click on the picture it should open up big enough to read. If not, please do let me know.

Here is another option for the “love” as they say in this particular book, or the decorations, as the rest of us say. In the top photo the chocolate shavings were created by running a knife along the flat back of a block of chocolate. These ones below were made with a vegetable  peeler along the side of the block. In both cases I dusted the cupcakes with cocoa powder (through a fine sieve) first.
