I was sitting in my livingroom the other day thinking about cupcakes, I do this quite often, and I had an idea, red wine cupcakes with chocolate ganache or mousse, and cream cheese frosting. Any yay or nay on this?
The ganache or mousse and frosting won't be hard in the least bit, I've made ganache and frosting before, I haven't made mousse before but I have faith in it. What I need help with is the cake. I'm only seeing chocolate wine cake recipes when I didn't want my cupcakes to be chocolate at all, is it more popular over practical, or should I just go for chocolate? And if I do say regular white cupcakes or something else, how would I incorporate the wine?
Also, the wine will be a soft red dessert wine, Ste Chapelle's, if that's anything.
Thanks for your help guys, happy cooking/baking.
