When I peaked into my recipe books for chocolate cakes, there were so many varieties such as chocolat mud, chocolat brownie, white chocolat strawberry, chocolat chilli, chocolat with macadamia nuts, chocolat fudge, chocolat cherry, mint chocolat, chocolat chips with raisins, hazelnut chocolat, orange chocolat and many many more. Well this time I baked a triple chocolat cupcake with greentea macaron topping. . . . . . What did I do? . . . .
