Whipped ganache cupcake

Today i baked my first cupcakes and i was happy of the result . I didn’t want to bake them with strong flavors just a plain vanilla cake and a chocolate ganache frosting. As you can see i called the post whipped ganache cupcake because instead of using butter icing ( that i find too sweet ), i used an easier and for me better option that is to make a chocolate ganache  which consist of cream and chocolate , chill it and then lightly whip it. By using dark chocolate in the ganache , it will compliment the sweetness of the vanilla cake and the result will be more tasty and a lot less sweet .
