My chocolate martini cupcakes start with the best chocolate cupcakes on the planet. The cupcakes are topped with a chocolate martini buttercream made with Crème de Cacao and Godiva liqueur which is drizzled with dark chocolate. But, the most fun part of these chocolate martini cupcakes is the actual shot of chocolate martini that can be squeezed into the cupcakes just before eating.
The vessel for the martini shot is called a Shot Top and it’s the brainchild of Wilton. If you throw a lot of parties, you may want to stock up on these and experiment with all kinds of boozy cupcakes!
Let’s take a closer look at how these chocolate martini cupcakes come together:
Here the cupcake batter is going into the baking cups. Any baking cups will do, but these “My Cupcake Are My Cocktails” baking cups are particularly cute.
I frosted the cupcakes with a star tip for the perfect cupcake swirl.
The chocolate drizzle is simply melted chocolate piped all over the frosting.
Here’s where I fill my Shot Tops with chocolate martini and place them on each cupcake! I didn’t have to use a martini glass, but that made it more fun when I got to drink the leftovers. :)
