Sponge cake for cupcake filled with pastry cream and topped with a chocolate ganache icing. These are a wonderful guilty pleasure.

These cupcakes are WONDERFUL! This recipe is done completely from scratch and you sure can taste the difference. These take a little time and TLC during preparation, but I think you'll find the effort is well worth it! The Test Kitchen
