Godiva Hazelnut Crunch Cupcake (Cake Blog). A classic chocolate cupcake dipped in dark chocolate ganache rolled in toasted hazelnuts, frosted with milk chocolate buttercream, topped with more ganache and a hazelnut truffle. OMG ... sounds SO good!
Dark chocolate peppermint cupcake w/minty icing. Love this frosting technique! According to the blogger's comments, she uses a Wilton tip and slowly frosts using the standard spiral motion. Moving slowly allows the frosting to ruffle up.
