What turns a simple, homemade chocolate cupcake into one deserving of the title “black tie?” Look at it this way – a black tie event is a fancy, dressed up event. And these black tie cupcakes are as well. The cupcakes themselves contain cocoa powder, espresso granules and buttermilk. The combination of the three turns them into something sweet and rich. Once they’re baked, part of the top and middle is cut off and they are filled with chocolate ganache before they are topped with cream cheese frosting. Black Tie indeed!
