The bitterness of coffee and the nuttiness of walnut combine well to qualify this fabulous dessert as a great choice for connoisseurs. Walnuts add the required crunch to these cupcakes, while the coffee decoction imparts a very mature flavour. Follow the exact procedure mentioned here for making the coffee decoction, in order to ensure the best flavour. Garnish with silver balls for a perfect finishing touch.
