I’m always mystified at the new coffee drink flavor combinations that they come up with and some that customers come up with… “I’d like a non-fat caramel macchiato unicorn blood crunch drizzle.. ” Or at least that’s what their orders sound like to me when I’m grumpy and uncaffeinated in the morning. To each their own, but about as crazy as I get is switching from a vanilla latte to raspberry mochas in the winter time. Those tasty overpriced raspberry mochas were the inspiration behind these cupcakes.
The cake is dense, chocolatey, and made with freshly brewed coffee. The center is filled with a homemade raspberry sauce that’s the perfect amout of sweet and tart. On top is a fluffy mound of chocolate buttercream frosting with more of the raspberry sauce flowing down. It’s pure decadence and perfect for any chocolate lover.
And who knows.. maybe one day I’ll order one of those over-complicated how-can-you-still-call-it-coffee coffees and be inspired to create unicorn blood crunch drizzle cupcakes!
