The Nutella frosting is amazing chocolate decadence in these cupcakes. If you love hazelnut, you'll love these. The vanilla cupcake is tender with a subtle flavor. It allows the Nutella frosting to shine. When mixed, the frosting is heavy but has an airy texture. Quite tasty. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
