Monstrous Black Forrest Cupcake

Yesterday I showed you my new kitchen gadgets. So now brace yourselves for my first monster cupcake!
I used a chocolate cake recipe from chefkoch.de. For the cupcake mould I needed twice the amount of the ingredients.
I mixed 5 eggs with 3 cups of sugar.

Then I added 1 cup of oil, 1 cup of milk, 2 packets of vanilla sugar, 3.5 cups of flour, 6 tablespoons of cocoa and 1 packet of baking powder.

Then I filled the two moulds and baked the cakes in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 40 minutes.

The two parts turned out perfectly.

I decided to make a black forrest gateau style cupcake and filled the bottom half with cherries.

Because I did not have proper cream I had to use cream from a spray can. It is very airy and thus was not the best option as it is fairly runny. It worked okay, though.

I put the second half on top and garnished it with plain cream, chocolate cream, cherries and chocolate shavings.

A monstrosity, but a delicious one! The mega cup cake kit was definitely a good buy!
