The idea behind this little dessert is that it is a black-forest cupcake wrapped in white fondant, then, filled with chocolate ganache to give it the appearance of a cup of hot-cocoa in a teacup.
♥♥♥ SO CUTE! ♥♥♥
Hubbie was feeling deprived of sweets, and Black Forest cake is his favorite, so this was a cute and creative way to play.
Chocolate Cake (for the black-forest base) + cherry pie filling (any will do)
Marshmallow Fondant (for the cup)
1. Bake your cupcakes in wrappers, remove wrappers when cool.
2. Cut out the center and fill with cherry pie filing.
3.Cut a strip of fondant, let harden slightly, wrap around the cupcake using a little white icing to stick it to the cuppie.
4. Using cooled (not too hot) ganache, fill the 'cup' with a little chocolate so as to cover the top of the cuppie. Add a marshmallow.
5. Using a bit of fondant, make a little handle in the shape of a 'C' and adhere to cupie with a little piping gel.
Serve on a saucer for best effect.
