Chocolate Cupcakes with Chianti Buttercream | Jelly Jar Party Favors


Chocolate Cupcakes & Chianti Buttercream Jars by Pastiche Events

 Inspiration: Dinner at Cooper’s Hawk Winery. Birthday Girl is a lover of red wine, chocolate and all things pretty.

Feeling inspired, I turned to Sprinkle Bakes,  the blog I browse anytime I want to attempt anything exceptional. Heather Baird always seems to have what I am looking for – here is her amazing recipe for Chocolate Chianti Cupcakes.

The recipe was near perfect, but I did find that when I was blending the cooked-down Chianti into the buttercream (ohhh, that buttercream…) I didn’t have to use the full amount the recipe called for. Maybe I did something wrong, but if I would have added the full amount, the frosting would have been too watered down. I was glad I decided to add less and taste-test as my Kitchen-Aid did its work. The frosting was so unbelievable that I double layered the chocolate cupcakes (I make them smaller so they fit the jars) just so I’d have an excuse to add more frosting! After the assembly, I placed the jars in an old wine crate to tote them to the restaurant.
