Mum has been asking me to bake these cupcakes for some time and I have been putting it off for various reasons. However as we were due to celebrate my uncle’s birthday, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to whip these up. Plus it’s a perfect flavour combination which gets everyone in the Christmas spirit!
As always this delightful pairing never ceases to disappoint. The aroma that permeates questions whether one is eating a Jaffa Cake or Terry’s Chocolate Orange – neither. In fact it is a rich, (aptly named) dense, moist, chocolately orange cupcake that it paired with a lovely chocolate ganache, topped off with a slice of caramilised orange.
I’m so happy with the way they turned out just as I envisaged; classy and chic. Don’t they look like they belong in a dessert display stand in some fancy chic cafe?
Nb: If you’re not a big fan of rind, I would suggest grating it much finer than seen in the photo.
I also found that the cupcake liners came off very easily which resulted in me removing all the liners for before serving. Not too sure why it does that though.
