Ferrero Rocher Cupcake (test batch)

March 5, 2010

For our wedding I am making a bouquet using Ferrero Rochers and decided to reflect this in our cake choice. After tasting some locally baked cupcakes I decided I would prefer to make my own (it ends up infinitely cheaper). A quick Google will unveil a multitude of cupcake recipes for any flavour desired. For my firsts go I went with a recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes from Cupcake Corner.

Cupcake Ingredients:
90g butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
2 eggs
150 g (1cup) self-raising flour
2 tablespoons milk
200g Nutella for mix
200g Nutella for filling
Biscuit Wafers

Buttercream Icing Ingredients:
125g of butter, unsalted, softened
350g icing sugar
200g milk chocolate, melted
3-5 tablespoons whipping cream

Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan force).

Beat sugar and butter together until light and fluffy.

Beat in eggs one at a time, adding a spoonful of flour if the mixture shows any signs of curdling.

Add milk/flour, alterating, beat in on a low speed until just incorporated.

Add 200g of Nutella and beat well.

Divide mixture between cases and smooth the surface. Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean).

Now onto the icing πŸ™‚

Beat butter in a bowl until softened, slowly add icing sugar bit by bit until incorporated. You can multitask and melt your chocolate at the same time (& cook pasta for your lunch, haha).

Beat in melted, cooled chocolate and add whipping cream until you have reached the desired consistency.

Core out the centres of your cupcakes and fill with Nutella and a biscuit wafer and replace lid (I just popped these on top as mine all sank). Pipe icing onto cakes and top with whatever you wish.
