This cupcake flavour was inspired by my favourite dessert at the Pancake Parlour called the “Alice in Wonderland” which is a pancake with a scoop of ice cream, hot fudge and rainbow sprinkles.

This cupcake version starts with a chocolate mud cake base topped with dark chocolate fudge frosting and rainbow sprinkles.

So what’s the surprise part you say? The pancake dessert has a scoop of ice cream, my cupcake has a surprise filling of thick, creamy double cream.

 So I couldn’t post this cupcake without posting a recipe for the chocolate fudge icing! It is really easy to make and you can substitute the dark chocolate for white chocolate.

Chocolate Fudge Icing
Enough for 12 cupcakes

250g (8oz) Good quality, dark chocolate
1/2 cup single cream
70g unsalted butter

Melt the chocolate, cream and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until smooth.

Wait until  the mixture is completely cooled and beat until it is light and fluffy.
And that’s it!
