Sachertorte Cup cake: Chocolate chocolate in a cup

 Have you ever dream about chocolate ? ^^. You don't have to answer me but if you ask me, I always dreaming about it, hehe.

This time my dream comes in cup cake size, the Sachertorte cup cake. The chocolate cake that even it's small in size the taste is not that small.
From the cake that full of chocolate flavor, the inside of the cake that contains chocolate ganache and apricot jam. The Frosting is rich chocolate butter cream that made from creme au beurre and melted chocolate. I use creme au beurre, because it's quite soft so when mixing it with melted chocolate the butter cream won't be too hard. But for this cup cake I really recommend you to serve it at room temperature, because the chocolate in the butter cream will make the butter cream to become solid after refrigerating.
With one bite of this cup cake, I think you will be in the chocolate heaven with me, ^^.
