Giant Chocolate Cupcake


I am back from my travels and am really pleased that I’ve managed to get this in for this month’s We Should Cocoa challenge. I was really excited when I first saw the challenge as I love birthdays and I love chocolate so I definitely didn’t want to miss out! It was also my birthday recently but as I was away, I haven’t had a chance to make a cake so this is a birthday cake for myself and for WSC. As the theme is chocolate, I’ve made a giant chocolate cupcake, filled with Spanish chocolate filling and topped with my favourite chocolate buttercream icing. I added some stars on top – why not? And some M&Ms as you just can’t have enough chocolate! This is definitely a choc-a-holics cake and it disappeared really quickly at work.

  6. He he, as you know I fully concur that you can never have enough chocolate. Belated happy birthday and I'm glad you made it to the WSC party too - and with such a magnificent cake. Your piping skills look excellent to me, I've quite envious.

    Hope you had a good holiday - the Spanish chocolate looks interesting.
