""...After all.....All you need is love.But a little chocolate now and then doesnt hurt""
What better way to indulge someone than making some dark chocolatey cupcakes with even more indulgent ganache as topping??
After a long spell of exams ,it was time to indulge my daughter with these superlative cup cakes!
