Jaffa Cupcakes

I was invited to a farewell dinner a few months back and they requested that i bring some dessert to share. Initially i wanted to make Orange cupcake, chocolate mousse, and sticky date pudding. In the end, I decided to make sticky date pudding, and Jaffa Cupcake.

What is Jaffa?
Jaffa orange is named after the city of Jaffa in Israel, where this orange variety is largely grown and exported world-wide. Australians and New Zealanders have Jaffas, a small round candy consisting of soft chocolate center with hard shell made of orange flavoured and coloured sugar coating.

OK, so this is how Jaffas candy looks like:

And this is how my Jaffa Cupcakes look like:
