My chocolate buttercream recipe :
125 gr unsalted butter
30-40gr Hollman soft cream
25-30gr cocoa powder, sifted
15-20 tbs icing sugar
50-60 gr melted & cooled compound chocolate (couverture taste a lot better, but it won’t hold a nice shape in hot & humid weather)
This is sufficient enough to frost 18-24 cupcakes
Use your favourite chocolate candy as topping, such as kitkat, delfi, twix or bengbeng
I use cappuccino cupcake recipe from tatyana everyday food and omit the kahlua. It taste nice however i found the te xture was dense. Not sure what i did wrong.
Therefore i prefer using chocolate cupcake recipe from my cupcake addiction. They’re super moist
My coffee ganache frosting
I use 1:1 ratio of chocolate & cream. It was too liquid, I should’ve used 2:1 ratio. Therefore i mixed this again with 1/2 cup of chocolate buttercream (recipe in my previous post), it was more sturdy and the taste was great.
300 gr compound chocolate
100gr whippy haan + 200gr water, add 2-3 tbs instant coffee to this water. Espresso would be nice to give strong coffee taste
2 tbs unsalted butter, room temp
Once it is cool down, let it sit for 3-4 hours and then whip.
Enough to frost 12-18 cupcakes
Sometimes i use half of ganache and mix with buttercream frosting. It taste amazing as well
