The cupcake itself was moist and tender-crumbed, but really didn’t taste like a good chocolate cake. It had a really waxy kinda aftertaste, completely lacked the rich depth and flavours from good chocolate, and was definitely more like an American butter cake (ie tastes like cheap chocolate/cocoa powder). The frosting also had too strong of an unpleasant buttery mouthfeel, and really where’s the speculoos in there? Also, idk if it’s cause I didn’t eat them on the spot or cause of incorrect storing instructions, but what I suppose was intended as a soft speculoos core turned out to be a hard, crunchy ganache-like ball. This was after letting the cupcake sit at room temp for 45 min after being in the fridge.
