Toffifay spider cupcake is a dark chocolate cupcake, frosted with white chocolate frost
and on top, a really cute little spider made out of Toffifay and chocolate buttercream.
This cupcake is so easy to make, so cute and pretty and so delicious.
I found the dark chocolate cupcake recipe on browneyedbaker's blog.
I have made it with some mild changes and also, the original recipe had a peanut butter frosting, however i wanted it to be a white frosting, so i found this recipe from allrecipes.
Instead of using a buttercream frosting, you can make a frosting out of whipped cream
and melted chocolated incorporated together.
For the cupcake:
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream (125ml)
For the frosting:
110g softened butter
250g powdered sugar
150g white chocolate
1 Tbsp. milk (if needed, i had to add it)
* I frosted my cupcakes with other frosting too, so maybe you'll need to double the frosting recipe.
For the cute little spider:
Chocolate buttercream of you choice or melted chocolate
Start by preparing the cupcake:
Heat the oven to 180C
Melt together the butter, chocolate and cocoa and mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and baking powder.
On another bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and salt.
Add the chocolate mixture into the eggs mixture and mix well.
Add the flour and mix a beat and then add the sour cream and mix till well blended.
Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cool completely and prepare the frosting:
Mix together the sugar and butter. Melt the chocolate and mix well.
If the consistency isn't what you need, add a Tbsp. of milk.
With a piping bag, frost the cupcakes and continue by making the spiders.
Place a Toffofay on the frosting and with a chocolate buttercream or a melted chocolate,
draw the spider legs and eyes.
