今年我收到最好的礼物就是小儿在没有爹地的引导下主动跟我说“Happy Mother’s Day!”，是第一次哦！听到的那瞬间真的很感动，感觉好窝心哦。
Hidden Heart Cupcake (Orange Butter Cake with Chocolate Chiffon Heart)
Can I still call this hidden heart cupcake since the heart is not totally hidden? haha
I made this for my mum and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. The “heart” is chocolate chiffon cake, leftover from my cake deco class and the cake base in orange butter cake. You can have any combination and any of your favourite recipes to make this hidden heart cupcake.
I adapted the recipe of this Lemon Butter Cupcake to make it into orange flavour by replacing lemon zest with about ½ tbsp of orange paste. You can also replace with orange zest. I think orange and chocolate is a good match, don’t you think so?
I made 10 cupcakes with hearts from this recipe (12 –hole standard muffin tray size) and one small cupcake without heart. I used one 6” round sheet cake (about 3/4" height) to cut out the hearts. You may make 1.25 or 1.5 times of the orange butter cake recipe and bake a small sheet cake for the “hearts” first (with added colouring) then using the same batter for the cake base.
To make hidden heart design, add little batter to the muffin cup/ tray, place the cut-out heart shape cake at the centre with standing position then cover the heart with batter. Bake as usual.
