Cocoa Cupcake with Rum Raisin Butter Cream!

Marusei Butter Sandwich is very famous souvenir by ROKKATEI (六花亭) in HOKKAIDO.
It's cookie sandwich filling with Rum Raisin Butter cream!!!
Unfortunately, HOKKAIDO is way to far from my hometown. So, I do click them with ROKKATEI online store once in a while.

I think American Cupcake was usually decorated with the butter cream. 
Here in Japan, Japanese people prefer whipped cream to butter cream. I don't really see butter cream...
But you know me! I am a big  fan of American sweets!
Therefore, Why don't I try Rum Raisin Butter cream with American Cupcake!?

Here it is! 

It turned out great just as I had expected! I mean more than that!

Go ahead and take a look at my recipe!

I referred to Red velvet cupcake recipe which has red color in it, but I made this as a cocoa cupcake. It's very soft, moisture and nice.
I believe Rum Raisin and cocoa flavor is totally working great! Hope you will love them!!
