Chocolate Peppermint Candy Cane Cupcakes

Here is a sneak preview of the November and December Special at the sweet kitchen – a dark chocolate sponge with a peppermint frosting and topped with a mini peppermint candy cane – very festive! I experimented with making a red and white swirled frosting and peppermint candy sprinkles, but thought it a bit much with the striped candy cane. I prefer the contrast of the natural frosting and the striped cane. Less is more in this case…
