Hummingbird Bakery's Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes

I've never heard of Hummingbird Bakery but they're supposedly a big deal in the UK or something? I've been wanting to make a Nutella-based cupcake for some time though, and these caught my eye. These are Nutella-filled, with Nutella buttercream on top. Yes, they're as delicious as they sound. 

Bake yo' cupcakes. Mix dry ingredients: 7/8 cup flour, 2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder, 3/4 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt. Mix wet ingredients: 3 Tbsp butter, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1 egg. Mix dry into wet, spoon into cupcake lined cupcake tin, bake in a preheated 325F oven for 20-25 min. Let cool.

Spoon out the middle of each cupcakes and put in a dollop of Nutella inside.

Buttercream is 2 cups powdered sugar, 5 tbsp softened butter, 2 tbsp milk, and 1/3 cup Nutella. Frost cupcakes and garnish with whatever you'd like (those brown and white circles are some toppings from a random yogurt thingy that I saved).

I brought them to my friend's jewelry party. She's trying to launch a business selling jewelry and wanted to gauge interest among friends. Yes I'm the token dessert person.

They're quite pretty

She has the coolest apartment

And the most photogenic cat

Everyone ('cept me)

Would I make this again? Yes, these are going on my repertoire
