Tip 1: Room temperature ingredients encourages proper emulsification of the cupcake batter therefore make sure egg, milk and coffee are all on room temperature
Tip 2: Do not overmix the cupcake butter, it should come together in a minute or two and no need to use a mixer
Tip 3: The recipe is designed to make 6 bakery style tall cupcakes. Cupcake cases are coming in different sizes in terms of their height, try to look for the taller ones
Tip 4: Heat double cream until just simmering. If it’s boiling, the cream is too hot and could burn the chocolate. If the cream is not warm enough, it won´t melt the chocolate properly and won’t emulsify
Tip 5: There are a couple of important notes to make stiff yet light, pipeable frosting. If using the right technique, there is no need to use tons of sugar, instead, enjoy this creamy, light and airy mascarpone & cream frosting that is balanced in sweetness
Tip 6: The green and white frostings are identical except the food colouring. Food colouring is the easiest way to colour the frosting however make sure you use powder or gel, liquid colouring can easily break the consistency of the frosting. Alternatively, if wanted to add taste too, not just colour, 100% pistachio paste or matcha powder can be used to achieve green colour. The depth of the colour is usually in line with the quality of the colouring whether it is food colouring or pistachio paste or matcha
Tip 7: Before assembling make sure cupcakes are cooled to room temperature, ganache is slightly thickened and frosting is freshly whipped
