Cupcakes for the grownups


I had been tinkering with the idea of a christmas cupcake...and here it is, the chocolate brandy butter cupcake.  It is a rich chocolate sponge with a chocolate brandy butter cream icing on the top.  I also made a vanilla version too- and very yummy they are, christmas in a cake- without being a fruit cake.



Being 6 months pregnant I'm off the booze (aside from the occasional glass of vino) but I did allow myself a taste of the butter cream icing as I was making it to check you could taste the brandy, but not have your socks blown off!

Definitely a cupcake for the grown-ups.
