Cherry and chocolate cupcakes with rose petals

This cupcakes are absolutely delicious! Recipe for the best cupcakes, with fruity and not too sweet cherry and mascarpone cream, topped with fragrant rose petals.  They look so pretty and taste so good!

For the cupcakes:

  • 100g plain flour
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 40g soft, unsalted butter
  • 120ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla pod or extract

For the cream:
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 1 tin of cherry pie filling
  • rose petals
Pre-heat the oven to 170C and line a 12 cupcake baking tray.
Mix all of the dry 'cupcake' ingredients with the butter, to make a sandy consistency.
In a separate bowl, whisk all of the wet ingredients, then add to the dry mixture and mix until well combined.  Remember not to over mix it.

Divide the mixture into 12 muffin cases.  Do not fill them up- only up to 2/3. 

Bake at 170C for 20-25 minutes.

To make the cream separate all the cherries from the 'jelly part' and set aside.  Mix the mascarpone with the jelly to make a smooth mixture and place in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

When the cupcakes are cooled, place a cherry on top of each cupcake and pipe the cream around it, sprinkle with rose petals.
