Sugar Rush Flavors: Dark Ninja

DARK NINJA: It’s dark, it’s strong and it disappears really fast. This rich chocolate cupcake topped with chocolate buttercream frosting and sprinkles is a real killer. P50 each. To order, e-mail

Everything started with the Dark Ninja.

Although back then, we just called them chocolate cupcakes.

After weeks of making scary cupcake mutations with the oven toaster and turbo broiler, we finally figured out how to turn on the new oven and make perfect chocolate cupcakes.

One Saturday, I woke up extremely late and hungover, completely forgetting that I had promised to bring dessert to my college reunion.

I trashed my plans of bringing perfect little heart-shaped cheesecakes. I just didn’t have the time.

Jill and I supermarket-hopped and spent hours baking what would become Sugar Rush’s Dark Ninja.

We must have enjoyed ourselves too much – although we needed to make just around fifty of those babies, we ended up with close to eighty of them.

They disappeared really quickly though – ninja-quick.

The following week, we had a sleepover with Giff and other friends who all wanted to learn how to make cupcakes.

Giff was the most enthusiastic of the lot, loving every moment of creating cupcakes – from mixing the batter and taking pans out of the oven to adding sprinkles and tying lovely ribbons around the cupcake boxes.

That is how we formed our trio of cupcake craziness.

We may have created other flavors since the Dark Ninja but our evil chocolate babies will always be special to us.

The Dark Ninja will always be our first – the mighty cupcake that kicked us in the nuts and said, “Hey freaks! What are you wasting your time on? Start making more of me!”
