How to Make Death by cupcake.

Step-by-Step

  • 1For the cupcakes:
  • 2Pick 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.
  • 3Put about 2 tablespoons of batter in each cup cake paper. Cook until done and let cool.
  • 4While 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.
  • 5For the Ganache:
  • 6In a microwave bowl cook the cream until very hot about two to three minutes.
  • 7Pour 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.
  • 8Cover ganache mixture and place in fridge to cool, stirring every five minutes.
  • 9Once 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.
  • 10For the frosting:
  • 11Cream the butter, add in vanilla and rotate the con sugar and cocoa powder. Adding in milk until you get the texture you desire.
