After last week's experiments with chiffon cake, I thought to myself, what would chiffon cake taste like in cupcake form? So I decided to find out.
I made the same coffee chiffon batter (since I looooooove coffee), and baked it up as regular cupcakes and also as mini cupcakes. The results were drastically different.
The mini cupcakes turned out great! They were light, fluffy, and springy. The regular cupcakes, however, sank in the middle. The texture was still nice, but they just didn't look very nice. I'll need to play with the baking times on those in the future.
So I decorated the minis with cocoa whipped cream, dusted the tops with cocoa powder, and topped it with little chocolate hearts that I had piped onto waxed paper.
Happy Valentine's Day!
