Black Forest Cupcakes
A very manageable version of the magnificent Black Forest gateaux you find in cake shops in Germany – sometimes a gal just needs chocolate, cream and cherries all together in cake form. I prefer mascarpone to whipped cream, so have included it here, but by all means substitute lightly whipped double cream if you wish. Sour cherries will give you that classic flavour in the topping.
|softened unsalted butter

|medium free-range eggs
|For the icing:
