Bon Jovi Cupcakes

Yup.  That's right.  BonJovi cupcakes.  HubbyDear's co-workers requested chocolate cupcakes decorated with a BonJovi theme for one of them.  Seriously.  My mind went                                   .  Just like that.

I've known about this for a few months, so I've had time to obsess … to no avail.  Sadly, I resorted to rather "boring" decorations.  I really like to make my own decorations, but this one just didn't happen for me.  We raided Country Kitchen for basic Rock & Roll themed decorations.

To make up for it, I'm making Nutella cupcakes instead of plain chocolate cupcakes.  I've been anxious to do a filled cupcake since my class.  I have the filling tip!  I want to use it!  :)

Favorite Chocolate Cupcakes

TWO containers of Nutella later … mmmm! 

I used Jamie's Nutella cupcake directions that included my go-to chocolate cake for the cupcake and Nutella Buttercream.  OH. MY.  <insert multitudes of heavenly angels singing>

Using a cupcake filling tip
Epic Fail Using the Filling Tip
As for the filling tip, I don't know if I'm just a wimp and couldn't squeeze the Nutella through it, but I could NOT fill those cupcakes!  I ended up using a regular frosting tip #8 instead and treated it the same as if I were using the filling tip - pushing it into the cupcake center and filling until the top swelled a bit.  It was kind
of amazing that I jar of Nutella was EXACTLY the right amount for 24 cupcakes!

Nutella Filled Cupcakes
Now, as for the Nutella buttercream frosting … let me repeat:  OH.  MY.  <there go the angels again!>

And the Nutella cupcakes have been proclaimed by hubby's office as the best cupcakes yet!  

Rock & Roll Cupcakes
Rock and Roll is here to stay ... these cupcakes won't last long!
