Baking inspiration can come from many places: a cookbook, a novel, or even everyday life. The middle option is the case with these Christmas cupcakes. Inspired by the book “Christmas at the Cupcake Cafe,” these mocha candy cane cupcakes have a deep, rich mocha chocolate peppermint base, a generous dose of peppermint Swiss meringue buttercream frosting, a lovely drizzle of (you guessed it!) even more chocolate, and a sprinkling of tiny peppermint bits to top them off.
