Description

These delicious cupcakes were inspired by ones created by Nigella Lawson. They feature a butter-based chocolate cupcake that gets its intensity from unsweetened cocoa powder, and a cream cheese frosting that’s piped in a swirly fashion using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Ground cinnamon is dusted on top, a la cappuccino.
