For the upcoming teacher's day celebration, beside the cream cheese cupcake, initially, I had the intention to bake this chocolate chip cupcake for the student and therefore, here is my experiment .. However, with the storage space constraint with my fridge, I have to scrape this idea.
Given that most kids are the fan of chocolate, any cake with chocolate favor will please them. I was toggling between the chocolate chiffon cake and this new recipe, and finally picked this as I think chiffon cake will shrink a lot in cupcake form when it cools down given that it's too soft. However, this cake shrank when it cooled down as well and it indeed affected its appearance.
I adopted this recipe from " 美味糕點新主張 ", I supposed to frost the cake with a layer of chocolate ganache but since it didn't turn up as "presentable" as I expected, I was quite disappointed and decided to give it a miss. Without the ganache, the cake was quite plain. For the seek of nice photo , I frosted it with ready made pink butter cream which was bought during my last Sydney trip. Personally, I find the ready made butter cream tastes horrible as it's too sweet. For consumption purpose, I will never use this.
I believe if I'll have to frost the chocolate ganache, this cupcake should be quite decent and I believe the kids will like it. I'll post the recipe when I've time.
