Godiva Swiss Chocolate Cupcakes Filled with Coffee Bavarian Cream Topped with Buttercream

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.

Makes about 30 cupcakes

1 18 oz. Swiss Chocolate cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
¾  teaspoon salt
1/3 cup coffee, brewed and cooled
1/3 cup Godiva liqueur
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
3 whole eggs

Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together with a wire whisk.
Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Pour batter into the lined cupcake tins, filling about 3 quarters full.
Bake in a preheated oven at 325 F until the cakes are done. About 20 minutes.
I recommend checking this DVD out for using this buttercream.
