Sour Cream Chocolate Cupcake with Nutella Hazelnut Buttercream

I was inspired by some Swiss Hazelnut Ice Cream I recently had, so I added Nutella and coffee to my regular buttercream recipe for that hazelnut taste.

Next time I think I will roast the hazelnuts and ground them up to a maize, then add them to the buttercream.

They were still good though!



  1. Hi! I just found your blog through a comment you left in the Idea Room re: Lightscoop. :) Does the kleenex over the flash really work? I should try it one of these days. Anyway, I love your blog so far. Lots of cupcake goodness and ideas. I actually just made some cupcakes with nutella frosting this past weekend and they were yummy! I was going to add a bit of coffee to them, but wasn't sure how they would taste. Maybe I'll try it next time. And if you ever have a chance, visit my etsy shop: I make garlands and such if you ever need any. Looking forward to future posts!

  2. Hey Jennifer, thanks for the comment! Yes! the tissue trick totally works. I remember now that I used to use it on my external flash all the time as well, great for people shots, much more flattering than just the naked flash. I also add coffee to my chocolate cake recipes too as it adds richness and cuts out too much sweet. Off to Etsy now to check-out your store. Hopefully I'll be listing some of my printables on Etsy soon too - when I get the time! Thanks so much for dropping by. Elise

  3. Oh wow, these are some gorgeous cupcakes. REally, how can you go wrong with these flavours???
