When making the last batch of cupcakes, my sister and I made a mistake with our buttercream frosting when we added raspberry purée that was too cold to the mixer and it caused the butter to seize and our buttercream for lumpy. I didn’t think it was that bad until I iced the cupcakes and saw all the bits but at that point it was too late to fix. However, I was mad so my sister suggested we make other cupcakes to redeem ourselves.
Today, we decided to make chocolate cream cheese frosted banana cupcakes filled with dulce de leche. The recipe was a lot less involved than the other ones we made and ended up tasting and looking much better. And we didn’t mess up the frosting so yay! The only issue with these is they are chocolate frosting and I don’t have my usual decorating stuff so with my limited options, the frosting does look slightly poop-like.

Anyways, as per usual, I had to find the right tea to go with the cupcakes and this sample from Roswell Strange called to me. It’s very chocolate-y which is what you’d want from a tea called death by cocoa but I think next to the super rich chocolate cream cheese frosting, this is a little meh. Could be nice when you want chocolate and don’t have it though.
