Raspberry and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations… or anything with raspberry for that matter. So below is another recipe that may get added to the regular rotation: dark chocolate cupcakes with raspberry cream cheese frosting. The frosting is one I make often now. I just love it!! It’s made with real raspberries – pureed, strained, and then beaten into a cream cheese frosting. It is NOT made with raspberry cream cheese. I didn’t even realize this possibility until someone asked me recently. To finish, I piped on the frosting after chilling briefly, making sure to work quickly as my hand normally heats up any sort of butter-based frosting when working with a piping bag. Then I decorated with a simple white fondant flower rather than my usual raspberry. The cupcakes turned out pretty cute for being so simple, if I do say so myself.
