Anyway, we decided on a MybakingAddiction's recipe for Mocha cupcakes. The cake mix itself is very similar to the Chocolate Ganache and dulce de leche cake, and the peanut butter ganache cupcakes but instead of water, you used brewed coffee- oh so good! Additionally, Mybakingaddiction is one of my turn to blogs when it comes to baking, I'm simply in love with the way Jamie (the blog owner) does things :)

We didn't get "proper" photos of the cakes, but we did get one mobile pic :)
|"Coffee and chocolate" is one of my favourite combinations of flavours :D|
The only things we did differently were:
Changed everything into metric.
In the cake mix:
Replaced buttermilk with natural yoghurt (runny, not greek style)
We used 1 cup coffee made with 4 shots of espresso
In the frosting:
Doubled the coffee.
We used much more liquid (6 tablespoons cream, and an extra couple of milk) in the mix, but possibly because it was simply freezing and the butter wasn't softening properly.
We found triple choc rice crispies and put them on the cake as decoration. It worked really well :)
