How to Make Death by cupcake.

Step-by-Step

  1. For the cupcakes:
  2. Pick a box of chocolate cake mix, which ever flavor or brand you like. Add in the eggs and oil as recommended BUT use the coke in EXCHANGE for the WATER.
  3. Put about 2 tablespoons of batter in each cup cake paper. Cook until done and let cool.
  4. While cupcakes are cooling, in a microwave bowl break up the chocolate and place in microwave. Cooking ONE minute at a time and stirring until evenly melted.
  5. For the Ganache:
  6. In a microwave bowl cook the cream until very hot about two to three minutes.
  7. Pour the cream over the melted chocolate and stir until well incorporated. Add in the butter one table spoon at a time and mix until well incorporated.
  8. Cover ganache mixture and place in fridge to cool, stirring every five minutes.
  9. Once no longer runny and slightly thickened, take the ganache and place into a piping bag with a thin writing tip. Then poke and fill each cup cake until some start to come out.

    -Or-
    Cut a small circle out and put some of the ganache into the hole. Then remove some of the cut cake top and replace.
  10. For the frosting:
  11. Cream the butter, add in vanilla and rotate the con sugar and cocoa powder. Adding in milk until you get the texture you desire.
  12. Then frost your cupcakes and top with cocoa powder and shavings.
