I made my very first cupcakes! I really have no idea HOW that happened but I was just completely avoiding cupcakes. However, after the amazing release of new cook book Sweet bars (Sladke bary) from Stana Mutlova. It has a cool name - PunkRockCakes! I just could not resist anymore. 

Ingredients for 24 cupcakes:
4 medium eggs
200 g caster sugar
150 g of sunflower oil
200-250 ml of milk
400 g semi-fine flour
1 spoon of baking powder
zest of 1 bio lemon 
50 g of chocolate chips

500 g milk chocolate 35% (choose the highest quality chocolate)
360 g sour cream

Turn the oven to 170 ° C. Mix the egg, sugar and lemon zest and whisk for a while, until the mixture is combined and begins to form a foam. Add the oil and blend well shortly. In a bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder. Add milk and flour with baking powder to the mixture. You can add more or less milk, depending on the texture. At the end, stir in chocolate chips. Pour the dough into prepared cups and bake it. Fill only 2/3 of the cup.

After 15-20 minutes, cupcakes will start to form nice mound and they will get brown. Take the skewer and test if they are already finished. 

Let your cupcakes to cool down and prepare the cream. In a water bath, heat the chocolate. It canNOT burn. Then add cold sour cream. Using a hand mixer, mix it together. No need to whip the cream for a long time. Then leave it for at least half an hour in the fridge otherwise you will not be able to work with it. It needs to hold its shape on cupcakes.

Using the decor tool, nicely decorate cupcakes with the cream. Then you can add whatever you want on the top. Or just let it be. It should be eaten within 2 days.
