Another one of The Hummingbird Bakery's recipes, a chocolate cupcake with cheesecake filling and a cheesecake frosting. I loved the idea, but not a great one for beginners as it requires a bit of skill and knowledge to get the cheesecake centre just right. I couldn't get the cheesecake filling to become firm enough which compromised the overall look and taste. I also used pure cocoa powder instead of drinking chocolate cocoa powder which left the mixture slightly bitter, I would recommend drinking chocolate powder to give it a sweeter flavour. The cupcakes were delicious and with a bit of tweaking I reckon I could be on to a winner. I loved the cream cheese frosting, not to sweet but it perfectly complimented these cupcakes.
