Step 1: Making the Cupcakes

You will need:
-Chocolate cake mix
-1/3 cup oil
-3 eggs
-3/4 cup coffee
-1/2 cup water
-cupcake liners
-muffin pan

Mix ingredients together. Place cupcake liners in each of the muffin pan cups. Fill the liners 2/3 full. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until done.

Step 2: Making the Flowers

To create the flowers:

Take some of the fondant and use food color gel and mix well. Roll fondant thin and cut with small cookie cutters. You can make any shape you want, I chose to make flowers. The middle of the flowers is edible pearls. I used gumpaste glue to add the pearls.

*You can create the fondant like in the cappuccino cupcake instructable.

Step 3: Creating the Fudge Frosting

You will need:
-1/2 cup of granulated sugar
-2 tablespoons of cocoa
-2 to 4 tablespoons of milk according to the spreading consistency
-2 tablespoons of margarine or butter
-1 tablespoon of corn syrup
-a dash of salt
-1/2 to 3/4 of a cup powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

Mix granulated sugar and cocoa in the pan, stir in milk, margarine/butter, corn syrup and salt. Heat to boiling stirring frequently. Boil for 3 minutes stirring occasionally and then cool. After its cooled you add the powdered sugar and vanilla.

Step 4: Finishing Up

Frost the cupcakes with the fudge frosting and sprinkle pearl dust over the top and add the flowers using a gum paste glue. Enjoy the chocolaty coffee flavor of these sparkling cupcakes!
