Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with a Red Hot on Top

Dark chocolate sour cream cake with a hint of cinnamon--reminiscent of Abuelita hot chocolate. Topped with an oversized (is there such a thing?) swirl of almond scented American buttercream frosting. Some then got a sprinkle of sanding sugar, some a drizzle of 60% dark chocolate ganache. A few took a full on dip in the ganache. But everyone got a cinnamon red hot on top.


  1. OMG! These look amazing! And I'm sure they TASTE amazing, too! Cannot WAIT for our wedding cake! hoots

  2. Thanks Hootie! I am so excited to do your cake. I LOVE the design I sketched out...and it's so fun that it will be a surprise for you and Nicholas. I cannot wait for you to see it!
