Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting - these are so decadently DELICIOUS! The ultimate Valentines Day cupcake! Love that the frosting is naturally pink and has a wonderful fresh raspberry flavor.
Chocolate is seriously big business. 2,650,342 tonnes of cocoa were shipped around the world in 2009/10, according to the latest data from the International Cocoa Organisation. We wanted to visualise that trade - which is where the Guardian graphics team came in, lovingly creating the map above out of melted chocolate onto greaseproof paper using paintbrushes and letting it cool.
