Soaked Coffee Cupcake with Coffee Buttercream

This Soaked coffee cupcake with coffee buttercream is so mouth watering!!

As I said previously I am a crazy coffee lover!. My idea of cupcake is the one the that we see in the windows and are drooling for. I was always very much for eating the cupcake because you can eat what you are craving for but in a small quantity. But, when I read the fine print that said everything in it has coffee , I was dubious. Won’t it be like eating coffee more like that ad that comes for the kopiko chocolate. How will you get the taste of cake with so much coffee in it? But, not until I made it did I realise that, that was not the case.

I used Ossoro ‘s Colombian coffee essence. It is really nice and gives out just a mild smell and flavour. If you like coffee I want you to give this cupcake a try and send me your reservations and also your funny stories with coffee or this cupcake. The best story writer will get a chance to word their thoughts as a prologue for my next post with your name in credits. So, ready to get popular? Then, get baking write away and keep the mails coming!!
