Ebony and Ivory

Chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate ganache filling, vanilla buttercream, and a tiny marbled sable cookie on top.

As an aside, almost all of the cupcakes I do for the shop are filled. I think it adds another layer of interest to have a complimentary or contrasting filling in a cupcake. (Recent favorites include vanilla cupcakes with a lemon curd filling and lemon-ginger frosting, and apple spice cupcakes with caramel filling and caramel buttercream). Plus, moist fillings keep the cupcakes from getting stale right away, which is no easy task. Dry little buggers. So filling + cupcakes = win.
