Today is National Cupcake Day. I was informed of this via Cupcake Project one of the brilliant blogs I follow. I am pleased that I am not the only cupcake lover to have not known what an important day it was today. I made these cupcakes shortly after I attended the Good Food and Wine Show and just haven’t blogged them yet as I wanted to let you know more about the amazing story behind this Madacasse chocolate. The story may have to come later but in the meantime here are some pictures of the most delicious cupcakes I have made yet.
I fell in love with the wrapping and display of this chocolate and when I tasted it I was totally hooked. Produced in Madagascar this chocolate delights all your senses and I couldn’t wait to use it in a cupcake. I chose the pink pepper and citrus Madacasse chocolate and melted half a bar into my icing. It turned the icing into a beautiful rich chocolate colour and I topped off the cupcake with a square of this heavenly chocolate. The comments from my testers were that it had to be the best cupcake from my kitchen yet and if I had a choice of one cupcake to take with me to a desert island this would be the one! If I was on the island I would probably put in a request for one of these in my glass bottle. I wanted to surprise you with this cupcake but what better day to blog this on than today!
