Chocolate and Blackcurrant Cupcakes

Chocolate and Blackcurrant Cupcakes are a surprising combination of flavours and seem to work really well together.

My cupcakes are a chocolate sponge mix with a handful of blackcurrants stirred in gently. I frosted some of the blackcurrants for decoration and they are so delicious it was a few for me and a few to decorate the cupcakes. 

The pretty cupcake stand is by Tala, I made twelve cupcakes but unfortunately I was clumsy and three were knocked over. I think I did quite well,  it could have been nine knocked over and three left to decorate the stand! 

We Should Cocoa is hosted by Chele of the Chocolate Teapot and Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog - Choclette is the host for this months challenge Chocolate and Blackcurrants.

Tea Time Treats is hosted by Kate of WhatKateBaked and Karen of Lavender and Lovage - Karen is this months host and the challenge is Cake Stall Cakes.

Thank you Tala for the pretty cake stand.

These look so sweet! I love the combination of blackcurrant and chocolate.

Oh I do like the look of those frosted blackcurrants - in fact I like the look of the whole thing. Frustrating that three weren't quite up to scratch - or was that just an excuse for having eaten them ;-) Thanks for entering into the spirit of WSC. They sound delicious.

I like the sound and look of these, in fact I wouldn't mind having one right now although I'm supposed to be on a diet.

What a LOVELY entry for Tea Time Treats - such lovely little cakes, thanks so much for your Cake Stall entry, and I am sure these would be gone in a flash!

Choclette - I didn't assemble the cake stand correctly at the base and lost three of the cupcakes! A We Should Cocoa disaster:(
