Ingredients for batter

Ingredients for frosting

Directions for batter
  1. Heat oven to 375 F°.
  2. Sift the flour and the cocoa powder into a bowl and reserve.

  6. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden on top and fully cooked inside.

Directions for frosting
  1. Beat the cream with the sugar using a hand mixer or wire whisk thick, and reserve in the fridge
  2. In the microwave (15-20 seconds) or on the stove using Bain Marie, melt the chocolate with the 3 tablespoons of cream, remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Combine the sugared cream from the fridge with the melted chocolate, and the cocoa powder. Mix until well combined and color is even.
  4. Put the frosting in a piping bag and decorate the cupcakes.
  5. Decorate with a piece of chocolate.
