I made these so I could use up some leftover buttercream I had left over from the Mickey Mouse Birthday cake I did for my nephew about a week ago. I also wanted to try out a new flavor of cake. I usually use the WASC recipe for all my custom cakes so when the opportunity allows, I like to create new flavors from it.
When I am looking for inspiration for a new flavor of WASC cake I usually look over at my bar. Godiva!!!!! Yup that’s the one.
Now for the filling? Ah ha………Coffee Bavarian Cream.
Normally for a fancier cake flavor like this one I would use a fancy buttercream like Italian buttercream or a Swiss buttercream or even a whipped cream topping. But, like I said before I just wanted to use up some of the left over buttercream I had. I do however, have one more box of Swiss Chocolate cake mix on hand so keep following and I promise I will top this cupcake with something a little more gourmet like.
