Nest cupcakes


For the cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the sugar, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed for 3-4 minutes until the mixture is fluffy.
  • Then, add the eggs, the vanilla extract, the milk, and beat until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • In a bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and mix with a spoon.
  • Lower the mixer’s speed, add the solid ingredients into the mixer’s bowl and beat until homogenized.
  • Add the chocolate couverture finely chopped and beat for a few seconds.
  • Place 12 cupcake liners into two 6-cup muffin pans and divide the mixture.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool well.

For the mousse

  • Break up the chocolate with your hands, and melt it in a bain-marie.
  • Stir carefully with a spatula until the couverture melts.
  • Remove from the heat and keep stirring until the couverture melts completely. Set aside until needed.
  • In a large bowl add the ice-cold heavy cream, the vanilla extract, and beat with a hand mixer at high speed until it becomes whipped cream. Do not beat it for too long as it will split. When it looks like yogurt, then it will be ready.
  • Add the melted couverture into the bowl with the whipped cream and mix quickly but softly, so that it doesn’t lose its volume, until the mixture is homogenized.
  • Transfer into a pastry bag and with a circular pattern, decorate the cupcakes with the mousse by creating a nest.
  • Add the chocolate sprinkles on top, and serve with 3 chocolate dragées into each nest of the cupcakes.
