It was my Dad’s birthday today and as his favourite cake is black forest gateau, when I saw a recipe that incorporated the flavours into cupcakes I thought it would be perfect. They are basic chocolate cupcakes, with the centre hollowed out and a spoon of cherry jam added. I topped them with whipped cream and then some cake crumbs as I couldn’t find any fresh cherries in the local supermarkets. But they could be topped with buttercream with a little bit of cherry kirsch and then a fresh cherry or dark chocolate shavings which would probably be equally delicious.
