Better Than Sex Cupcake

This one's a little cheeky. When Ariel asked me if I could customize a flavour for her friend's birthday, she gave a list of suggested flavour combinations along with the request. And that list consisted of a variety of Frangelico-based cocktail mixes. 



Fortunately, or unfortunately, the only mix that I had almost all the ingredients for was the Better Than Sex cocktail (;



I never tried this, so it was down to my imagination to try and replicate this flavour. I tried to follow the ratio of Frangelico, Kahlua and Grand Marnier exactly in 2:2:1, and out came this cupcake:



Chocolate cupcake base with Frangelico ganache filling, Kahlua cream cheese frosting, Kahlua and Grand Marnier ganache topping and hazelnut feuilletine for additional crunch.



Well I'm not sure if this is really better than sex... You tell me? (:
