Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes
I love chocolate and orange together and I love how blood oranges are such a delicious new take on that combination that tastes nothing like your typical chocolate+orange combo. Plus, I couldn’t get my mind off the vibrant color the frosting would take. To really celebrate the flavors, I decided the cupcakes needed a filling and since I am obsessed with curd, a blood orange curd seemed only natural. The curd adds a really lovely creamy contrast to the rich chocolate cake and the bright frosting.
