Dark Chocolate + Raspberry = Heaven
100% Dark Chocolate from a little chocolate shop in Southern Germany + Fresh picked German raspberries turned into raspberry curd = Heaven x1000000!
These cupcakes are probably one of the most decadent, sophisticated cupcakes I’ve ever made. The intense dark chocolate paired with the tart raspberry curd plus the sweet buttercream are a combination unlike anything I’ve ever had before.
I made the raspberry curd a few days before I made the cupcakes, so it made for really easy assembly.
And the vanilla buttercream is my most favorite recipe for vanilla buttercream EVER! I’ve made it before and it’s become my “go-to” recipe for vanilla.
The chunk of chocolate on top… yeah, that’s a German chocolate. Raspberry Chocolate. PERFECT for this cupcake.
